#7- The Lobster

I don’t think I’ve seen a more strange film in my entire life. At face value, “The Lobster” is a quirky, darkly comedic dystopian film; when you take a deeper look, however, you notice that it’s really a social commentary about relationships. The film is set in a future wherein single people are sent to a hotel where they must find a mate within 45 days, or be turned into the animal of their choosing. Colin Farrell plays the protagonist, David, a near-sided man. You’ll noticeĀ all but one of the characters are nameless. They instead are identified using physical characters, and these are how they match up with potential mates. “The Lobster” is a biting satire that is both hysterical and heartbreaking.
