Storyline

Yorgos Lanthimos's movies love to flirt 'often comically' with horror: the fear that behind the façade of society is a gaping maw of existential terror. In this dastardly short, a shrewdly cast Matt Dillon realizes that no role in life is irreplaceable. Suddenly, nothing is safe not even ourselves. Written by yusufpiskin

The same old doppelgänger's joke but at least there are some of the most beautiful pairs of feet seen lately.
27 November 2020 | by MehoKnicksSee all my reviews

The somnambulistic universe inhabited by Lanthimos/Fillipou characters is not limited to closures through the wide-angle lens use. It extends to a reactionary critique of home, family, affectivity, de-historicizing (contra, say, Bergman's similar doublings in 'Persona') the pathologies that afflict it by stretching the doppelgänger effect ad infinitum and by reducing structures to communicative breaching experiments.
