The Killing of a Sacred Deer ★★★★★

Wow. Built upon very interesting pretense, this is a film that showcases man's inability to accept and act, and the terrible outcome that can come from inaction.

The dialogue is strange, the acting is strange, the film is strange (all aspects of Yorgos Lanthimos' style) but the subject matter really hits home. It was difficult to watch the doctor's inactive response to accept and take the appropriate steps necessary to resolve the dilemma he put himself in. I think the film is showing us how "evil" can happen in the midst of inaction. This is what happens when people in power avoid addressing problems, try to pass them off to others to resolve, when ultimately they are in the sole position of taking the actions required to resolve them.

Also, Nicole Kidman is a fearless and fantastic actor. Between this and Big Little Lies, she is continuing to prove she is one of the top actors working in film today.
