The Killing of a Sacred Deer(2017)
Heart surgery scenes in the film are real. They were filmed during an operation on a real patient who was undergoing quadruple bypass surgery which Colin Farrell attended.
What I wanted to say is that the film was appealing for me from the beginning and kept my interest till the end.For some strange reason Farrell's character speaks mechanicaly but the others not so much,which maybe was related to the fact that he was a surgeon.I liked the acting from the protagonists.My favorite performance is that of Keoghan,who slayed in my opinion as this weird character,Martin.The viewer goes through three stages:1)(S)he watches a kind of intimate relation between the surgeon and the kid-there is a little suspicion for Martin,though.2)(S)he hates Martin thinking he is a stalking psychopath who is jealous of the family. 3)The viewer realizes what happened during the surgery and Steven's blame for the result.(S)he stops sympathizing with the protagonist anymore.
Generally,it was interesting the matter of justice that arises,how fair the world is and if revenge can guarantee the balance.Scientific means and roles are doubted,while the borders of revenge are questionable,if we think that there are many innocent people in that.Cinematography was nice,sound use in direction was well made.The movie has also the absurd element,judging by the necrophilic tendencies that the Steven mainly has.I found it a little funny the whole magical thing with Martin and the rest family members suddenly who cannot move etc etc.I ecpected Silverstone's appearance to last more.The ending was okay,we like seeing the differences between the scene at the beginning and the last one,while I liked the thing with her trying to finish the potatoes(contrasting to her past illness).I think it is one of my favorite Lanthimos' films.
