WTF?

That’s probably the most-likely question asked after watching this twisted lil’ Greek puzzler.

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, who has gone on to make other memorable head-scratchers like The Lobster and The Killing of a Sacred Deer, this one starts weird, then goes batshit crazy from there.

The tale of demented, smothering parents who keep three adult children locked away from the outside world, it’s a giddy mix of highly-inappropriate sex, violence, and gradual descents into madness.

Against all odds, it also copped a well-deserved Oscar nod for Best Foreign Language Film.

Well done, Academy voters, for once.
