In celebration of our one-week run of Dogtooth director Yorgos Lanthimos’ new film Alps, we’re bringing back Dogtooth for a special one-time-only midnight show! Combining the gripping, unpredictable tension of a prime Polanski thriller, the perfectly-executed production design of a Wes Anderson contraption and the freaky-deaky blackly comic absurdity of a David Lynch nightmare, Dogtooth is easily one of the most unique filmic creations of the last few years. On par with Antichrist and Enter The Void for sheer audacity, this intoxicating mixture of physical violence and verbal comedy is the story of three teens perpetually confined to their parents’ isolated estate, and kept under strict rule and regimen — an inscrutable scenario suggesting a warped experiment in social conditioning. Fully utilizing every last inch of onscreen space, Lanthimos paints the blackest of portraits with austere, antiseptic visuals, and elicits a total warped commitment from his entire cast — thus indelibly immersing you into a claustrophobic emotional netherworld never before seen.
Dir. Yorgos Lanthimos, 2009, 35mm, 96 min.
