The Killing of a Sacred Deer

The Killing of the Sacred Deer

Dir: Yorgos Lanthium UK,Ireland 2017 121mins
Language: English
Starring: Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Barry Keoghan.

The title is a metaphor, as is the film’s central dramatic predicament. As allegories of extreme discomfort go, this one is masterly orchestrated in the vein of classic Kubrick. This is
frontal attack on patriarchal assumptions in which an emasculating father figure may face his own hubris.
