    Just as the sun rarely sets in this place, Midsommar wears its audience down like they’ve been strapped under a giant heat lamp.

    There is a torturous, biting audio that surrounds Yorgos Lanthimos latest surreal picture, The Killing of a Sacred Deer. It drones on from scene to scene, sometimes leaving completely, but lurking alongside the visual, ready to add that piercing…

    There is a torturous, biting audio that surrounds Yorgos Lanthimos latest surreal picture, The Killing of a Sacred Deer. It drones on from scene to scene, sometimes leaving completely, but lurking alongside the visual, ready to add that piercing sonic climax.

    We follow cardiologist Steven Murphy (Colin Farrell in full black comedy form, wearing a survivalist beard) as he navigates life or death karma in the form of deranged teenager, Martin (Barry Keoghan). He’s polite and friendly…
