The Lobster

Look, you thought your dating life consisting of Tinder was bad; well, things could be worse.

Dogtooth director Yorgos Lanthimos' The Lobster is a Kafkaesque world where 'non-attached' humans are sent to a compound of singles and have 45 days to find a partner or face being turned into an animal of their choice.

Starring Colin Farrell (if there's no hope for you mate, we all might as well give up) and Rachel Weisz (same, again), The Lobster may in its magical realism provides possibly the most poignant satire of all this year's films. Ignatiy Vishnevetsky from the AV Club observed, "As the shocks and surreal-satirical conceits pile on, they accumulate meaning, leading to a semi-ambiguous finale that questions whether it’s even possible for two people to be in love on terms other than the ones their culture has laid out for them. There’s comedy that’s weird for its own sake, and then there’s this.” Take our money already.
