Reviews:
"THE LOBSTER's first hour is close to perfect in its merciless satire, creating a fully realized parallel universe as mundane as it is savage and a hero racing against a very different kind of biological clock." - 05/12/2016 A.V. Club


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "While extremely funny, it is a bitter and ruthless film. Lanthimos plays target practice and his aim is deadly." - 05/13/2016 RogerEbert.com


"It’s a wondrously silly premise, and one that Lanthimos, not unlike those great cine-surrealists Luis Buñuel and Charlie Kaufman before him, executes with rigorous illogic and immaculate formal control." - 05/12/2016 Los Angeles Times


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "THE LOBSTER, with a score that samples everyone from Beethoven to Nick Cave, comes at you with images that burn and laughs that stick in the throat. Take the challenge of this movie -- it'll keep you up nights." - 05/12/2016 Rolling Stone


"Mr. Lanthimos’s method is to elicit an appreciative chuckle followed by a gasp of shock, and to deliver violence and whimsy in the same even tone. THE LOBSTER is often startlingly funny in the way it proposes its surreal conceits..." - 05/12/2016 New York Times


"[T]he most original and beautifully strange love story since ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND." -- Grade: A - 05/12/2016 Entertainment Weekly


"A black comedy laced with moments of shocking cruelty, the film is a dystopian allegory about the human need to find a mate -- a brilliant, if morbid, meditation on relationships in the age of the dating app." - 05/13/2016 The Atlantic


"It takes a touch of audacity and madness to make a film like this, a screwball, absurdist tragedy..." - 05/19/2016 Boston Globe
