Yorgos Lanthimos delivered one of the best films of 2016 with The Lobster, a darkly comedic and comprehensive satire of relationships and dating, featuring a wonderful performance from a schlubby Colin Farrell. If you walked away from that film thinking that maybe the director of Dogtooth was softening a bit, Lanthimos returns this year — schlubby Colin Farrell in tow — with his darkest film yet. The Killing of a Sacred Deer is a predictably uncanny, pitch-black tragicomedy that pits a narcissistic surgeon against a sociopathic teenager for what is undoubtedly one of the most disturbing cinematic experiences of the year.
Some people look forward to the next Marvel movie, some anticipate the newest Star Wars entry, and then there are people like me, who count down the days until the new Yorgos Lanthimos film. Finally, we have our very first trailer for The Killing of Sacred Deer, the latest twisted nightmare from the Greek filmmaker.
