The Killing of a Sacred Deer

Greek weirdo Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, The Lobster) recruits an impressive cast (Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Alicia Silverstone) for this arty horror drama about a heart surgeon who strikes up a strange friendship with an odd young man, much to the detriment of his family. This metaphorical flick is far less absurdist (and much more accessible) than Lanthimos' previous efforts. It's also a lot less interesting, sticking to various genre conventions and looking like a very slow Stephen King movie directed by a very drunken Stanley Kubrick. 121 minutes R.
