    The Lobster


    A peculiar film filled with peculiar characters. The Lobster is one I heard nothing but praise for with its clever concept and its blend of dark humor and drama. It certainly is a solid film, but it left me more numb than I expected.

Both critics and fans are contending why this was an achievement or an utter failure. I have to say though that I enjoyed this. I'm not checking this one as "Contains Spoilers" simply on the grounds that most of this was made known in the trailers or was ruined by critic click bait headlines. Don't worry…
