The Killing Of A Sacred Deer

The brand new trailer for The Killing Of A Sacred Deer has been released by the folks over at A24. The film, which we gave a very positive review to over in Cannes, stars Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman and a superb Barry Keoghan, along with Raffey Cassidy, Sunny Suljic, Bill Camp and Alicia Silverstone.

Farrell plays Steven Murphy, a devoted family man with a history of drinking. Murphy, married with two children,his alcoholism now firmly in the past, has befriended a teenage boy Martin (Barry Keoghan), who’s connection to the cardiologist is not immediately apparent. Martin is an only child to Alicia Silverstone’s character, who’s husband we learn passed away a few years previous. The two hang out at a local diner and by the river in this nameless town/ city, Murphy often plying the young adult with gifts – like »

The Killing Of A Sacred Deer trailer

Tony Sokol Aug 17, 2017

Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman trade anesthesia hits in the new The Killing Of A Sacred Deer trailer.

“A surgeon never kills a patient,” Colin Farrell’s doctor character says in the new trailer for the upcoming A24 psychological horror film The Killing Of A Sacred Deer. “An anesthesiologist can kill a patient but a surgeon never can.”

The film, which co-stars Nicole Kidman and Barry Keoghan (Light Thereafter), is a slow-burning revenge drama in scrubs. The trailer shows Farrell bonding with a young patient, while bits of family history drop like medicine into an IV. Kidman’s character looks like she’s put out from the waist down as the surgical air gets thicker. The Killing Of A Sacred Deer was directed by Yorgos Lanthimos. The screenplay was written by Lanthimos and Efthymis Filippou.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer premiered in competition at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. »

First Trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos' Eerie 'The Killing of a Sacred Deer'

16 August 2017 6:02 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I don't understand why I should have to pay the price?" A24 has debuted the first official trailer for The Killing of a Sacred Deer, the latest film from Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, Alps, The Lobster) that upset audiences at the Cannes Film Festival this year. This devious thriller is about a family tormented by a teenage boy. That's about all I will say, as it's best to experience this and let it unfold in front of you. The cast features Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Alicia Silverstone, Raffey Cassidy, Bill Camp, Sunny Suljic, and Barry Keoghan (who you will recognize as the kid from the boat in Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk). This film is designed to get under the skin of audiences, making some people hate it, while others will love it. I wrote in my Cannes review that "it's some seriously creepy, unsettling stuff." But I still loved it. Here's »

‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’ Trailer: Yorgos Lanthimos’ Twisted Film Will Destroy Your Family — Watch

16 August 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s hard to imagine a more purposely uptight and knowingly gunshy film synopsis than the ones bestowed on Yorgos Lanthimos’ deeply original oeuvre of films.

His “Dogtooth” was about “three teenagers [who] live isolated, without leaving their house, because their over-protective parents say they can only leave when their dogtooth falls out.” Later, his 2015 arthouse hit “The Lobster” concerned “a dystopian society, [where] single people must find a mate within 45 days or be transformed into an animal of their choice.”

Cannes 2017. Funny Games—Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Killing of a Sacred Deer”

30 May 2017 2:06 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos has a knack for creating hermetic, bleakly hilarious worlds. Returning to the Croisette this year with the The Killing of a Sacred Deer (his second film in English after The Lobster, which won the Grand Jury Prize in 2015), co-written with longtime collaborator Efthymis Filippou, Lanthimos renders a twisted suburban nightmare with the stuff of Hellenic myth. It's assaultive and deeply unpleasant, and nothing less than his Funny Games.On paper, that’s a supremely promising conceit—the visceral impact of Haneke’s brilliant assault refracted through Lanthimos’ distinct, absurdist sensibility. For all its potential, however, there’s an odd lack of urgency to the first hour, centered on the daily rhythms of Steven, a cardiologist and surgeon played by Colin Farrell (here jettisoning the memorable paunch of The Lobster). He talks with colleagues, does his daily rounds at the hospital, and goes home to his ophthalmologist »

Cannes 2017: The Killing of a Sacred Deer Review

23 May 2017 11:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jo-Ann Titmarsh

Intense choral music in the dark opens The Killing of a Sacred Deer, setting the tone for an intense ride into the crazy world of Yorgos Lanthimos. The first image we see is a close-up of a beating heart, the marble and red organ surrounded by the blue sheet of the operating theatre. This segues onto the surgeon dropping his bloodied gloves into a bin: the colours and image is similar, but one represents pulsating life and the other defeat and death.

The surgeon is Steven (Colin Farrell). He’s a renowned cardiologist married to ophthalmologist Anna (Nicole Kidman). They are a beautiful couple with two gorgeous kids – Kim (Raffey Cassidy) and Bob (Sunny Suljic). But there is another less gorgeous element: Martin (Barry Keoghan) is a teenager who surreptitiously visits Steven. They have covert meetings and Steven lavishes the boy with expensive gifts. Is he an illegitimate child? »

Cannes Review: ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’ is Pure and Simple Sadism

22 May 2017 12:14 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With the successive features Dogtooth, Alps, and The Lobster, Yorgos Lanthimos seemed to be going down the same route as Wes Anderson, i.e. become one of those auteurs who refines rather than expands on his idiosyncrasies, making largely interchangeable films on an ever grander scale but with diminishing returns. In this regard, The Killing of a Sacred Deer represents a departure, venturing into genre territory previously uncharted by the director. Although a felicitous turn in principle, the dispiriting results suggest Lanthimos might have been better off staying on his original course after all.

It’s a pity, too, because for its first hour or so, The Killing of a Sacred Deer is extremely promising. Lanthimos creates a gripping and steadily intensifying sense of foreboding in depicting the professional and domestic life of his protagonist Steven (Colin Farrel), a successful heart surgeon with a picture-perfect family: beautiful wife Anna (Nicole Kidman) and two teenage children, »

Cannes Film Review: ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’

22 May 2017 4:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In Nara Park, Japan, spotted deer were long believed to possess divine properties. To cause the death of one, even by accident, was a capital offense. Halfway across the world, in ancient Greece, King Agamemnon learned this the hard way, invoking the wrath of the gods for killing one of Artemis’ beloved deer, for which he was obliged to sacrifice his own daughter, Iphigenia. The obvious lesson: Don’t kill deer. But what if the deed is already done? That’s the premise of “Dogtooth” director Yorgos Lanthimos’ latest ruthless allegory, “The Killing of a Sacred Deer,” which has nothing at all to do with wildlife, holy or otherwise — although it does feature two key scenes in which a hunting rifle plays a critical role.

The title is a metaphor, as is the film’s central dramatic predicament (Lanthimos goes out of his way to make sure we understand that, »
