0:00 - 48:29 - review of THE LOBSTER and discussion of the movies of Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos


On today's episode of Deep Focus, host Tom Breen talks with Lucy Gellman about THE LOBSTER, a new dark satire from Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos. Breen and Gellman also talk about Lanthimos' previous two films, DOGTOOTH and ALPS, as a way into some of the key themes this idiosyncratic filmmaker is interested in: artificial vs. genuine intimacy, oppressive social regimes, and absurdist takes on judgment and punishment.
