Midnights: DOGTOOTH

August 25 @ 11:55 pm

Eventbrite - Midnights: 'Dogtooth'

“Horror and cold humor commingle in Dogtooth.” – Hollywood Reporter

“This is the second feature for Lanthimos, and it’s a leap from his well-received debut Kinetta. He skilfully doles out tantalizing pieces of information, keeping the viewer in a constant state of suspense and wonder.” – Toronto Star

“The true dark-horse nominee among this year’s foreign-language Oscar contenders, Dogtooth leaves bite marks that stick around long after you are released from its grip.” – Globe and Mail

A controlling, manipulative father (Christos Stergioglou) locks his three adult offspring in a state of perpetual childhood by keeping them prisoner within the sprawling family compound. The children are bored to tears in spite of distractions like Christina (Anna Kalaitzidou), an employee of their father’s who makes regular visits to sexually service the son (Hristos Passalis). Increasingly curious about the outside world, the older daughter (Aggeliki Papoulia) hatches a plan to escape.

Dir. Yorgos Lanthimos. 97 min. 2009.

Midnight Special! $5 beer + shot combos available during the screening.
