At first, expensive gifts and then an invitation for dinner will soon earn the orphaned teenager the approval of Dr Steven’s perfect family, even though right from the start, a vague, yet unnerving feeling overshadows Martin’s honest intent. And then, unexpectedly, the idyllic family is smote by a fierce and pitiless punishment, while at the same time, everything will start falling apart as the innocents have to suffer. In the end, as the sins of one burden the entire family, only an unimaginable and unendurable decision that demands a pure sacrifice can purge the soul. But to find catharsis, one must first admit the sin.
Plot: Dr. Steven Murphy is a renowned cardiovascular surgeon who presides over a spotless household with his wife and two children. Lurking at the margins of his idyllic suburban existence is Martin, a fatherless teen who insinuates himself into the doctor’s life in gradually unsettling ways.

I am a big fan of some of Yorgos Lanthimos’ earlier work, so _The Killing of a Sacred Deer_, which I had been told in no uncertain terms would be a straight up horror movie, was well and truly on the agenda for 2017. Unfortunately, I found that not only was _Sacred Deer_ not at all a horror, but more importantly that it lacked the dark whimsy of something truly odd, like the director’s previous film, _Lobster_. Instead it opts for an outright uncomfortable tone. The world is real, boringly so, and it is only the characters who seem unbelievable. Which is a 180 on the sort of absurdism I usually gravitate towards. That said, _Sacred Deer_ still contains some beautiful cinematography, and a couple of the most genuine laugh-out-loud moments I’ve seen in a movie all year.
_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
Finally got the chance to see this via Amazon.
Dogtooth and The Lobster (from the same Greek director, who I must admit has a keen sense of storytelling) did not impress me at all. Very interesting ideas; atrocious presentations. Dogtooth was indecipherable and The Lobster is cruel, ugly, and not humorous in any fashion (I’ve no idea why it’s billed as a black comedy.)
However, this latest film is entertaining to me despite it’s grim and inky-black nature (based on the ancient Greek play, which is where the title is loosely derived from.) Perhaps it’s a bit more straight-forward despite its cryptic nature, a bit more involved in some form of reality we can recognize and less inference as to what the hey is really happening. But I sure watched it w/ more interest than The Lobster (I’ve no interest in the director’s film prior to that one.)
A successful heart surgeon (w/ a past history of alcoholism, sober for some time at present) is shown to have an uneasy alliance w/ the teenaged son of a patient who died on the operating table. It’s clear the boy has some hold over this surgeon, who seems eager to please him but his heart’s not into it (no pun intended.)
The boy’s true intentions are revealed as events move forward; the surgeon’s wife and two children (a few years apart, both intelligent in their own ways) are placed in grave danger as well as dear old Dad, and to reveal just how would spoil it for first-time viewers.
The camera-work here is impeccable, as are the jarring soundscapes, found-sounds, and industrial noise which makes for harrowing listening. The actor playing Martin, the teenaged oddball w/ a shared secret, is riveting to watch in a well-suited role.
Sacred Deer isn’t so much a horror-film as a drama w/ strong elements of dream-like reality, awkward young romance, and assorted chills and cold calculated sex-scenes involving “playing dead” and “the other.”
My biggest complaints would be as before w/ this director’s work: everyone speaks their lines as if hearing them through an ear-piece to parrot back, which makes the cast seem rather stilted and robotic. This director favors a weird tangent of “Mamet-speak.”
The ending is about what you’d expect, following the matter-of-fact discussions which precede it. Up until that point Sacred Deer does a pretty good job keeping us wondering what will happen next, where will things lead, what is that kid’s gift and whereupon was it bestowed; unfortunately the outcome isn’t as entrancing or unexpected as I’d hoped.
But overall worth my time to watch. Considering how disappointed I was by the previous films by the director I’d watched (great reviews, all of which confounded and puzzled me) this film was much less of a bore and a chore to watch. A pleasant, unpleasant surprise indeed.
,,, I were the husband’s colleague
That is all.
3 stars for that.
A dark curse a strange and wicked like suspense drama thriller.
“The Killing of a Sacred Deer” is one film that as you watch seems so different and odd for the way that each character goes thru emotions and doubt, it’s clear they all suffer. The story is that of a well to do family lead by heart surgeon Steven Murphy(in a good turn from Colin Farrell) who has a trophy and elegant socialite also doctor wife Anna(Nicole Kidman in a sexy turn love her in that gray colored bra!) and their two young children Bob and Kim make up life.
It’s only when Steven has a friend in a young man named Martin(Barry Keoghan) that he and things change for his family one by one things become more unsettling with drama and doubt and worry. It’s like something that happened in the past is now a curse that the Murphy family has to face. Overall the film is nerve challenging as you wonder will this evil ever come to wash away , overall good one to watch as the cast also has great working chemistry.
