Here Josh, are you happy, you fricken frick, you hecken heck, is this what you wanted?
Bizzare, beautiful, and witful, The Lobster is an extremely well made commentary on the unbalanced and corrupted relationships within society.
The dystopian world is terryfying, balancing a complete lack of emotion with a subtle sense of humanity and childishness. The music is repetive, but extremely atmospheric. The images are bland and desaturated, to excellently parallel the emotionless characters. The dialogue is intentionally cold, but hilarious. Every technical aspect of the film is wonderful. This is completely different than…
“I suspect foul play”
Congratulations Rian Johnson, you’ve crafted a bold political commentary masked with a smart and hilarious whodunnit.
A game of clue trips the genre formula so many times that it comes out the other side as an amazing satire. It lifts the classic genre callbacks while adding a comedic commentary on today’s America. Seriously, at times this is just fucking hilarious. At some points the score was inappropriately incorporated, and the pacing was all over the place. But I feel as though the experience will change with knowledge of the conclusion.
Thank you Rian Johnson
