The Lobster, 2015 - ★★★½

I'm still trying to think what to say about The Lobster. My first feeling was the slightly worrying thought that it didn't actually seem that strange. It definitely isn't conventional but it did have a more mainstream appeal that I wasn't expecting. When it did have more extreme moments they felt out of place and it was perhaps a problem throughout the entire film that the tone did change so much. The first half is stronger than the second although the similarities between the two groups also provide a lot of the interesting issues in the film.
