The trouble lies in the film's noncommittal tone, which too often deviates from Lanthimos' reliable deadpan. Set against the earlier films' prickliness, The Lobster seems oddly ingratiating.

Greek director/co-writer Yorgos Lanthimos designs a distinctive dystopian world and questions the idea of typical relationships and how couples connect at a surface level.

Highly original and mordantly funny. Perfect for fans of Franz Kafka, Charlie Kaufman and other bleak surrealists.

The Lobster amounts to razor-sharp satire blasting away at the societal norms and constructs of relationships, but a shame that it decides to ditch its hotel setting full of intrigue

Lanthimos doesn't deliver all the way, but he sticks his landing mightily and whets appetites for whatever he decides to do next.

Lanthimos's unsettling tour de force reminds us of how chained to coupledom dignity remains at both the private and public level.
