Yorgos Lanthimos is an acquired taste. Much like the bizarre, brilliant film The Lobster, Killing of a Sacred Deer, based partly on the Greek tragedy Iphigenia in Aulis, won't exactly appeal to general audiences. Teaming once again with Colin Farrell, the film tells the story of a brilliant surgeon, his family and a teen he has taken under his wing after his father died during surgery. But the film takes a rather dark turn and while Lanthimos leaves a lot unanswered, he leaves a lot more to contemplate. It's a challenging film in the best way.
