    First image that comes to mind when I think of this film is Ben Whishaw bashing his face onto a desk and I chuckle ever time.

    I know this movie getting alot of accolades but I wan’t a fan. I felt like it could have been cut down somewhere so that the film would flow better and not feel so glacially paced. There some great moments like the part you mentioned where Ferrell attempted to form a relationship with the psychopath.
    I also saw this at a festival but it was the third film of the day so that may have been why it tried my patience as much as it did. I was actually quite disappointed because The Lobster was one of the films I was most looking forward to seeing.

    Great piece. The comparisons to Bunuell are very interesting and something I hadn’t considered. I really liked the film, but I thought the first half was way more interesting than the second. I’d say before he leaves the hotel, it feels more Bunuell in tone, but the second felt a little more like a dark Wes Anderson film, somehow becoming less bizarrely surreal, and more intentionally quirky.
