Positives

  • Oscar level performances by Barry Keoghan & Nicole Kidman. Keoghan’s presence is constantly felt throughout. He also gives the most eerie & chilling performance of the year so far.
  • Great performances by Colin Farrell & Raffey Cassidy.
  • Yorgos Lanthimos’s direction is for the most part fantastic, with multiple scenes having a strong Kubrick & Polanski feel.
  • An Oscar level screenplay by Yorgos Lanthimos & Efthymis Filippou. This is one of, if not the, most thought provoking screenplay of the year so far.
  • Oscar level score by various artists. The score/soundtrack creates the films unique environment to perfection.

Negatives

  • None.
