Cannes 2015: 'The Lobster' Review

One of the most divisive films in the Competition may also be my favorite. Director Yorgos Lanthimos burst onto the scene a few years ago with the dark Dogtooth, and his latest is no less of a jet-black satire. It's called The Lobster, and it concerns a near future in which all single people must find a mate within 45 days or be turned into animals. And did I mention how funny it is? My review is up at Paste.
