Lanthimos' very postmodern (i.e dated) fascination with deconstructing social rules and norms has served him well, but The Lobster is portentous and overstylized, desperately straining for acceptance. Whether Lanthimos has a perspective on humans outside the realm of facile intellectual conceits is debatable. He enjoys playing semantic games, but he doesn't always follow through. The Lobster is an undercooked high concept 'art' film that's well made but is less daring than it initially seems.

Filmen förutsätter att åskådaren accepterar några ganska absurda premisser. Gör man det har man sedan en ganska rolig stund framför bioduken. Farrell är utmärkt i huvudrollen och visar sig kunna långt mer än jag trodde på förhand. Men har filmen nåt att säga? Den vill nog få oss att fundera kring samhällets normer för vad som är "match" mellan en man och en kvinna och varför vi (I allmänhet) eftersträvar att leva parliv. Men nåt eget bud är det tveksamt om den ger.

Absurdly unique romance movie that even managed to give me the shivers at times as it portrays the way society wants relationships to be - which obviously is absurd.

I wasn’t disturbed by The Lobster, perhaps because while I was aware Lanthimos had a larger theme in mind, I never connected with it, whatever it was. I just took in the pleasures of the film. I wouldn’t go so far as to call The Lobster fun, or say I wanted to watch it again. But for the most part, the fun was what appealed to me.

This film has an original script with some interesting ideas. There are also some weird moments and scenes throughout the story. Colin Farrell gives a very good performance in this film. Overall I would recommend this film.

This was hilarious. Maybe a bit too deadpan to make the themes really hit home, you get the sense this society has desensitized all the characters so much that the idea of love and meaningful relationships is lost on them no matter where they stand. But it still has a lot of interesting commentary on social expectations, human connection, conformity, and non-conformity as if emotions aren't meaningful if not put in some relation to social expectations.

A truly great movie. Using the tools of absurdity, satire and black comedy to analyze and deconstruct romantic relationships, loneliness and love. Colin Farrell shows a side of himself never before seen that truly demonstrates astonishing potential. Rachel Weiss is equally hilariously bizarre and intriguing. I love that we are obviously in an alternate world but are not given all the pieces to completely understand this world, allowing the audience to fill in the blanks. A wonderful film.

I can see why it's pretty polarising. It can be a difficult watch and doesn't evoke much pathos, but I think the emotional blunting actually makes it work. It functions on a couple of different levels as a fun, absurdist satire on love without being too up its own arse about it. The pragmatism of this concept of needing some kind of superficial compatibility to open yourself up to someone, and of the constant pressure to affirm one status or the other is utopic - emotion and chance defy it.

The Lobster is an odd, but entertaining dark comedy that is just enriched with Lanthimos' distinguishing style of filmmaking. It's a clever caricature of the present-day society's perspective on matchmaking and romance. While the film does lose a bit in the third act this is still a wonderfully well-made film that should be viewed with an open mind.

I think the biggest problem with this movie is that it tries to be both cynical and heartwarming at the same time, and it's nearly impossible to juggle both. There's some solid social commentary in there, but it feels like they're saying both "the world is ok in spite of all this" and "the world is far from ok because of all this" and the two messages don't gel. Probably because of this, it felt twice as long as it was to me.

An interesting look at the nature of relationships, but it's almost too eccentric for its own good. The incredibly dry humor misses more than it hits.

I will say that this bracing allegory hits home about the rules society — and by extension, us — impose on relationships. The symbolism is humanized by a top-flight cast and an ending that manages to be brutal and rapturously romantic at the same time. As ever, Lanthimos takes us places most films fear to tread. He asks, with skepticism and regret, is true love a fantasy or a felony or something in between?
