One of the year's most daring scripts, The lobster is set in a world where finding a companion is enforced by law, or else you're transformed into an animal. Starring Colin Farrell in a role that demanded he turn off all his natural charm to play a man desperate to find connection in a world that alternately mandated it or forbid it

Audacious, bold, overwhelmingly bleak with a streak of very black humor running through. Much like Yorgos Lanthimos earlier Dogtooth - this is not going to be a general crowd-pleasing film, but it is entirely unique and exceptional, even if the pacing can be a bit slow. This is biting satire wrapped in a grim future with weirdly unlikable yet unforgettable characters. If you want something different, The Lobster will fulfill your wish.

Any film that attempts to be as audacious as 'The Lobster' deserves immediate commendation, but that doesn't change the reality that as unusual and fresh as it's simultaneously quaint and brutalist sense of humour may be, the actual experience of watching this film is dull and occasionally deeply unpleasant for no really good reason. Watch it once, then never, EVER again.

a strange and weird and slow movie that feels more like a weird art movie than a movie in the normal sense its not bad in the bad sense but its just too weird to be enjoyable. and too slow. the acting is fine but its all potatoes and no meat and just far to strange to take seriously though its played dead serious. interesting but too odd to like,

Appealingly weird, and funny in a brutally dark sort of way. The final third dragged, unfortunately, as the movie tried to find a place to go.
