Film Series: The Lobster

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.

MGMT gets positive review in Greece

Two weeks without a mention of Wes darlings MGMT? I think not. FYI: even the Greeks are hopping on the MGMT bandwagon.

The Athens Voice recently gave a favorable review of the latest MGMT album, Oracular Spectacular:

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.

Thanks to Anna Pachner ’09 for the tip and Greek skillz.
