The Lobster ★★★½

Purely brilliant for its former half, and a little lackluster for the latter, The Lobster definitely overstays it's quirky welcome; though, that's not to say it isn't one of the best comedies (if you can even call it that) of the year. I'm all for anti-plot films, but after the departure from the hotel, its illogicality grows tiresome, as the age-old question of where is this all going? finally begins to dawn.

But, even with its length, Lanthimos is making original, necessary films like no one out there, and for that, I thank him. Whatever comes next, I'll be there opening night, and I'm sure with many others as well.
