Film Fest Gent - The Killing of a Sacred Deer

"The rich vein of unsettling darkness and psychological unease that ripples like a treacherous underground stream beneath the absurdist humour of Yorgos Lanthimos' work becomes a brooding requiem of domestic horror in his masterfully realised fifth feature, 'The Killing of a Sacred Deer'. Reaching back to classical Greek tragedy, this hypnotic tale of guilt and retribution provides an even more riveting role for Colin Farrell after his collaboration on 'The Lobster'. He's flanked by a never-better Nicole Kidman and a performance of chilling effectiveness from emerging Irish talent Barry Keoghan in a thriller that frequently invites comparison to vintage Polanski."
