I am all for being challenged and taken to new places by independent cinema but this is just pretentious twaddle with no substance.

It proceeds to dole out sharp commentary on society's pressure to find and maintain a relationship at any cost, even by introducing a child to the dysfunction. However, all this goes to waste as The Lobster overstays its welcome. Without much more to say, the film drags along, promising a grand revelation in its finale. Alas, the final scene was telegraphed long ago to anyone paying attention, and lingers in the air like rotting shellfish. Expand

The aesthetic and color palette of the movie is very pretty, and the actors are extremely good too. At first you don't really understand what's going on, but after a while you start to understand everything. It's a very nice movie to watch, even if you don't like this "style" of movies, and it gives you a lot of thoughts. Expand

A darkly funny movie with something really important to say about relationships and societal pressure.
