    The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    ★★★★

    Still pretty great, but disappointing after how much I loved The Lobster. I've heard a lot of complaints that the deadpan acting feels a lot more out of place in this film, which I sort of agree with-- I kind of liked it in the sense that it helped build tension and made me somewhat untrustworthy of all of the characters, but I didn't really find that it added to the themes of the film quite as much, and I…

The son was a bit iffy at some points in the film and I found him a bit annoying in the beginning, but after he's in the film…
