Mini Review - The Killing of a Sacred Deer

The Killing of a Sacred Deer (out Nov 16) is a thriller about a successful surgeon (Colin Farrell) who finds his family stalked by a creepy teenager. I was a huge fan of director Yorgos Lanthimos's last effort, The Lobster, but this one didn't work for me. I admired the film's jarring visuals (the camera is often so far away) but struggled with the narrow premise. Grade: B-.
