    Yorgos Lanthimos, director of surreal 2015 feature Lobster, has a track record that suggests he doesn’t do mainstream movies and didn’t disappoint with the edgy, off-key The Killing of a Sacred Deer.

This genre-bridging sci-fi, psychological thriller-horror will also have you scratching your head long after you exit the cinema and fill […]
