    The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    ★★½

    All the pieces were there but god damn did Yorgos drop the ball hard on making any of this work past being yet ANOTHER entry into the “creepy vibes and nothing else” canon that seems to be so prevalent nowadays.

    Now three deep into Yorgos filmography and I’m convinced the man can’t write dialogue to save his life if it isn’t crafted and delivered in the most AI generated way possible. It works in some of his films (Lobster and Poor Things)…it did not work here.

    Parallels out the wazoo. However, this world and the visuals deserved a better story. The potential was there. Enjoyable nonetheless.

    The tense, deranged mutual cousin film between “Speed” and “Apocalypse Now”. Multiple moments had me thinking wtf with Tim Robinson’s inflection resonating in my head.
    The bridge scenes alone were worth the price of admission.
    Hopeless & Dreadful. Lessons? Sometimes there’s just no redemption for your sins, no escape out of the hell you land in, and no way to avoid the grave you dug for yourself. 
    Not my favorite Friedkin, but it’s an all-time classic.
    Pure, psychotic, and ambitious filmmaking.

    Attempt #2 at watching this as my first attempt was stymied by the fact that I was hungover, so it wasn’t fair for me to rate it because I gave up an hour in.

    And yet…
    I still came away with the same feeling:

    A solid start (real people, real problems™️) ruined by a ridiculously stupid, immature, and exhausting path to the finish. A mediocre Matrix and 12 Monkeys family trauma drama mashup mixed with an unhealthy pour of 2010…
