This movie was recommended to us by Ana and now I’m recommending it to you!
Dogtooth explores the idea of the human psyche isolated from the outside world and how our desire to explore and satiating natural curiosity are among our most basic instincts and needs.
You’re somewhat left on your own to put the pieces together and figure out what’s going on which is no easy feat, but this movie does it very well by providing everything you need with subtle clues found in the visuals as well as within the vollies of dialog. It’s amazing how you can initially be in the dark about what’s going on, but still keep your interest through the whole film. I feel that too few people appreciate cinema talent like this.
If you’re only allowed one Greek film a life, make your’s this one. Rent it, download it, or stream it on Netflix. Do anything you have to to ensure Dogtooth makes its way into your life.
