Wow. Just wow. The Killing of a Sacred Deer: Movie review.

Wow.

Just wow.

Sorry for the repetition.

It’s not easy to reinvent cinema; but Yorgos Lanthimos is doing just that.

He’s pulling in Hollywood A listers to put in career defining performances in his movies and hey, with a Greek shrug of his shoulders, he’s pulling it off.

Agamemnon would cheer; I think.

This is a great piece of work.  It’s art house and it’s extremely challenging, but nobody left the screening I was at, despite several flinching moments.

I can’t review this on a plot basis because it would spoil it entirely.

But I will say it’s a masterpiece in direction, superb acted by all three main protagonists and darkly hilarious, although not many in the auditorium laughed.

And beautiful.

Just beautiful.
