The Killing of a Sacred Deer

The Killing of a Sacred Deer ★★★½

Like a dream that slowly turns darker with every passing minute until it reaches its climax and you will be left with a mixture of amusement and shock.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer brings a very awkward and uncomfortable viewing experience. The whole film has this eerie feeling to it like you are not allowed to watch it all unfold. And then even have you laugh at particular events, feels almost evil in a way. The constant zoom-ins and crescendos of strings only enhance this feeling of unease. And no surprise here, but I LOVED all of it.
Lanthimos does it entirely in such a masterful way that is hard to look away, even from the disturbing images he shows us. The way some shots are executed is breathtaking and when the music swells during certain scenes, I was swept off my feet.

Going to be a hell of a fun time when this releases to see how people will react to it.
