"The Lobster" director Yorgos Lanthimos (Yorgos Lanthimos) new work in 2017, very much in love with the content and style of "The Lobster". For this film, I have seen many polarized reviews. Personally, I still like it, but it is very depressing and I feel very bored after watching it.

About the prototype of the Greek mythological version of the story, I don’t want to repeat it. Almost every film review has mentioned it, and it is definitely more professional than me. I want to talk about the film itself, a large number of extremely distant shots and stylized photography with push and pull, the eerie piano monophony, the mechanized expressions of the protagonists and the way they read their lines, make the whole film full of eerie atmosphere, starting from the back It's cold, and I don't know when it will break out. These stylizations are also a major point of attack for bad reviews. But I disagree, as long as the form serves the content, there is nothing wrong with it.

Regarding the plot, it is a family matter, so why not a country, a world matter? The pathological explanation of the strange disease is too superficial. This is a surreal story in itself. All the medical, police, and legal systems in reality are invalid for this story, because it wants to explore the malignant human being outside the rules of civilization. , the so-called revenge and fairness are only discussions on appearances.

What about the substance? In the face of death warnings from the outside world, people did not unite, but disintegrated each other, using the most humble gesture to please those in power, but does escaping this time mean safety? Does it seem that the superiors easily stir up the crowd, make them forget the real enemy and can't wait to show their favor?

In the end, when my father chose who to kill, he put on a black hat, put a white cloth bag on the three family members, and held a long gun. Does it look like the execution picture spread by terrorist organizations, which is really outside the law of the world stage. This is happening. And the expressionless revenge boy, like America, which calls itself Big Brother, thinks that it is revenge and salvation, but only pushes innocent people to death.

After reading it, I felt chest tightness for a long time.
