Ideally - but very fittingly - the DVD doesn't decide to come off its spindle, 35 mins in, and appear jammed... :)— THE AGENT APSLEY (@THEAGENTAPSLEY) May 2, 2018
Very interesting story-telling, almost without words, so far - and confusing what is and isn't being staged and / or filmed !
As one would want from Yorgos Lanthimos, not pressure-of-speech-type chatter, but a quiet, observational, experimental, and often just plain odd film - avoiding the drama that seems to jar in, and mar, the films in English ? :https://t.co/MCQxBzaxzehttps://t.co/HjgMZCu99B pic.twitter.com/m12wwi7IVC— THE AGENT APSLEY (@THEAGENTAPSLEY) May 3, 2018
Yet, if one were to believe the ~150,00 votes for The @LobsterFilm (2015) and ~57,000 for @SacredDeerMovie (2017) on @IMDb, both rank at 7.1, and so are >2 points 'better'...— THE AGENT APSLEY (@THEAGENTAPSLEY) May 3, 2018
Watch, and boost the 790 ratings on which it's based :https://t.co/L5bQlYiaixhttps://t.co/EtrDcOwpso
Some after-throughts :
Finally, #UCFF completes a Yorgos Lanthimos trio of Alps¹ (Alpeis) (2011) and Kinetta² (2005) with Dogtooth (Kynodontas) (2009) :— THE AGENT APSLEY #ScrapUniversalCredit #JC4PM2019 (@THEAGENTAPSLEY) March 5, 2020
All better than Deer - or Lobster !
¹ Seen at @CamPicturehouse (in 2013 ?), and not yet re-watched...
² Seen on DVD in May 2018 (and re-watched).
Forget The Lobster (2015) - you should be showing Alps (2011) (or even Kinetta (2005)) ! https://t.co/Cv1R7ubf0J— THE AGENT APSLEY #ScrapUniversalCredit #JC4PM2019 (@THEAGENTAPSLEY) January 1, 2019
