2015. Greece/UK. Dir: Yurgos Lanthimos. With Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz. 118 min.
A newly divorced schlub has forty-five days to find a new partner at a single’s retreat or else be transformed into an animal of his choosing. Dogtooth auteur Lanthimos builds on his far-out premise in unexpected ways, constructing an absurdist parable about love that’s deeply unsettling yet surprisingly human.

They play “clumsily” and “off-handedly” with the impressions from a mini psychedelic trip that incorporates pop music trends from the age of Ian Hunter, Cuicide, CCR, and Spaceman 3. Two Americans attempt a blend of glam, punk, garage, and dance, processed into pop psychedelia. Encouraging debut.
