There is no rigor here, only cold intentionality.

A bizarre and gross tale of family values, home schooling, and isolation from the world.

A miserable, consistently worthless piece of work...

Films with a distinct view are welcome but not when they are as minimalist, grainy, bereft of soundtrack music and lacking in entertainment value as this one.

The father is the only one who can leave the house to go to his factory job, and that seems like a paradise for viewers trapped watching this clinically shot claptrap.

Dogtooth is one of the funniest films of the past 12 months, an unforgettable social-satire, a devious little test of endurance for brave movie-lovers and the best argument against home-schooling since The Jonas Brothers.

Marking Lanthimos out as a great talent to watch, Dogtooth is a bold and unsettling mini-marvel that first sneaks up on you before biting you to the bone.

Giorgos Lanthimos' sublimely unsettling parable begins with an outlandish idea and follows it through with devastating logic.

You cannot recommend it lightly because it's disturbing, but it's good.

Cinephiles (have) reacted to Lanthimos' skewed vision in much the same way as the confined children at the heart of the story: through the inquisitive, excited eye of someone catching a glimpse of a new worldview for the first time.

A litmus test for not just how much de-glamorized sex and violence you can handle but whether or not you want to be assaulted by a sea of nothingness that will stay with you for days. Sitting in stunned silence seems like an appropriate reaction.

Doesn't rank as a great film, but it's difficult to take your eyes off it, as you wonder what impossibly bizarre thing might happen next.

The most original, challenging, and perverse film of the year so far, Giorgos Lanthimos's artfully rigorous treatise on human conditioning can be viewed as absurdist horror or the cruelest of comedies.

Suffice to say that we won't be seeing an American remake of this one any time soon.

Riding the perverse line between bizarre, awkward and darkly funny, this award-winning film follows the strange antics of three siblings brought up by their misguided parents in complete isolation from the rest of the world.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)

One of those movies that seems less interested in what you feel while you're watching it than how much you have to chew on once it's over.

City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul

This pastel-colored portrait of disaster capitalism was made long before the Greek economic crisis, and that's something of a relief: Straight parable could never feel as urgent and unexpectedly moving.
