Saw this tonight. Barry Keoghan was the standout and it sucks that he isn’t getting any Oscar buzz. Kidman and Farrell were great too. I think this is better than Yorgos Lanthimos’ last film, The Lobster, which I still really liked. Hope more people see it, its great.

I liked this better than The Lobster, which I felt was a little too on-the-nose at times, and while I didn’t enjoy (well, “enjoy”) it as much as Dogtooth, it’s great work from Lanthimos and keeps his place as one of the most interesting directors working today.

It really is a shame he’s at the bottom of the predictions. He’s fantastic and instantly memorable. I would say I hope this means good things for his career but it looks like he’s already been having a really busy 2017.October 31, 2017 at 6:24 am #1202398639
Colin Farrell deserves his first Oscar nod for Sacred Deer.October 31, 2017 at 6:29 am #1202398644
Can we get confirmation on Nicole Kidman’s placement? She is obviously Supporting but I need them to confirm it asap.October 31, 2017 at 6:29 am #1202398645

I liked The Lobster more than this. My friend I saw it with hated it while I liked it (we have reversed positions on mother! however haha). We both didn’t like the flat/no affect acting at the beginning and the ridiculousness of some of the situations. I admit I laughed aloud inappropriately a few times. Those seemed like outrageous shocks for the sake of outrageous shocks. Then the twists happened and the movie turned into something else which then kept me rivted. My friend wanted to know the how, and I can understand that. Was it real? Was it poison/hypnosis? I didn’t need that (my friend’s thoughts on why Kidman’s character’s had the fate she did: 1. It wasn’t poison 2. She told her agent “It’s boobs or floor dragging, not both” haha) because to me it was more about the reaction and decision. I thought Kidman was wonderful and so was Keoghan. Farrell was strong but I found him to be better in The Lobster and In Bruges.November 13, 2017 at 8:59 am #1202409334
Kidman’s best bet is The Beguiled in supporting.January 2, 2018 at 3:40 pm #1202453949
What a movie. Tough. And even though it’s in English, the script (mostly how the actors say their lines) feels so much like a Yorgos Lanthimos movie.January 2, 2018 at 4:13 pm #1202453967

He did write and direct it.
I know. I should’ve articulated my thoughts a little better. What I meant is that he doesn’t get lost in translation.January 8, 2018 at 2:47 pm #1202461058
Watched it last week, loved it. The whole errie feel of the film was amazing, loved the cinematography. I really liked how it was not explained, that how is Barry Keoghan doing all the things to Farrell’s family.
Great performances by, Farrell and Keoghan. I didn’t understand why Nicole Kiddman did this film cause I think there wasn’t much for her to do in this. I mean anyone could’ve done that part.
