What a waste of time. Most pathetic characters ever. I only cared for the dog.

Every character in this film seems to be a narcissistic sociopath, except for maybe poor little Bob. The really scary part of this story is, apparently in the 21st century any idiot can become a heart surgeon. Here one of these 21st century idiot surgeons and his family are outwitted and ...Read more

A previous review called this a "beautifully shot slasher flick," and that's dead on. It seems to me the director, Lanthimos, has a recurring problem. He has a style, but he has no subject worthy of it, so it sort of exists for its own sake. The Lobster was almost a brilliant sort of ...Read more

I found the mechanics of the plot completely fascinating, but couldn't care about any of the characters. The heightened anti-naturalistic style of acting makes everything feel very arch and cute so it's hard to buy in to the emotional stakes, which basically makes the film play like a very ...Read more

It would be sacrilege to give anything by Lanthimos less than 4 stars.

Not a movie to earn from....Agree with Anita's comment: to many unanswered questions about a family filled with desolation and lack of empathy and love among them...very cold!

Good However ...very confused? is that kid his son too? Why did not care the kids were dying? how did the girl get better? why didn't the mom get sick? I think the whole family had issues who does this stuff...shooting your son then eating in a diner....to many unanswered questions?

1) Cardiologists don't smoke. 2) Sex with your wife as she pretends to be anesthetized is really quite strange. 3) Shoving a donut down your kids' throat is a good way to choke him to death. 4) A mother who stands by and watches him do that with nary a "STOP IT!" is impossibly strange. 5) ...Read more

That's a lot of blanket statements. I am CERTAIN that somewhere, a cardiologist is a smoker.

LOL- yeah, you're right. Likely in Europe, Russia, and China for starters. Otherwise, I stand by my other opinions, even though they weren't even the primary reasons why this film turned my stomach.

They did it again. I was never more elated then in my seat. That scene with the tree is one I will remember until I am old.

that gets an overall "meh" from me. Slow and long. Had so much potential to only fall flat.
