Utmost Lanthimos: a retrospective

Yorgos Lanthimos has created a brilliantly seductive confrontationist cinema—with echoes of Bunuel’s absurdity, Godard’s experimentations with form, and surprising dashes of slapstick and horror. Each new Lanthimos release is a major event in the world of cinephilia—he’s won five awards at Cannes and his films have received 12 Oscar nominations—and we’ll celebrate his upcoming POOR THINGS (12/22) with a showcase of his three most provocative films and some rarely seen short films.
