10. The Lobster
Before Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos rose to mainstream fame with his Oscar hit, The Favourite, he was churning out dark comedy indies such as Dogtooth, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, and The Lobster.
The Lobster tells of a near future where citizens must find love before a certain age. If they don’t, the law will take them to a hotel where they’ll find “the one,” or else be turned into the animal of their choice. I bet you can guess what animal the protagonist wants!
The dark humour is the star but the horrifying reality of the future isn’t far behind. It's a clever parody of a society that demonizes those who can’t find love. The Lobster is an acquired taste, but one that is like nothing else to those who crave it.
