    I would say everyone watching this has already seen the movie. We don’t need a summary, man. We need an analysis! What do characters represent? Why was this colour used? What is the significance of the diner, the doctor’s weird handy story, that kinda stuff.

    The movie kind of made it seem like there was something paranormal going on the entire time. Unsettling. And not in the way you want a horror movie to make you feel.

    This movie was not only confusing but very VERY monotone. I guess I just didn’t get it. This movie just made me frustrated with the way they spoke and how everything just seemed so boring but made you feel anxious the whole time. I wouldn’t not recommend but if you have anxiety quickly I wouldn’t watch it.

    anyone else really really hate the mom in this movie? The fact that she was borderline obsessed with her husbands “infidelity” while she was giving a handy to his friend in the car. Or how she assaulted Kim multiple times? Or when she says they can always just have more kids if they kill one? She annoyed me the whole movie and when she didn’t die i was disappointed 😐

    This movie was a steaming pile of garbage. I can't believe some people find the director deliberately alienating the audience somehow profound? No. It just makes the whole movie an unwatchable mess. It's like the director makes a movie with the intention that the viewer will care about nothing in the movie. And then some people applaud him for succeeding, and idk rub themselves with glee when nobody in their right minds would find such a thing valuable. "Ooh but you don't get it it was supposed to be garbage". Yeah well I don't enjoy trash, no matter how deliberately it was made. Why should anyone?

    Steven adds up his daughter having menstruation for first time in conversation is not vague he mockingly added it bcz he was not liking anna telling his friend everything in detail about their home life. So he went like yeah tell him all of it, how abt our daughter's menstruation.

    The funny thing is (sort of) the curse can only be lifted via eye for an eye/ flesh for flesh. Steven should have sacrificed himself to save his family and for killing Martin's father. But Steven is such a soulless selfish douche he never even entertains the idea and would rather kill one of his family than himself. Martin is the "villian" here but Steven is no hero.

    I can tell you an experience that I remember vividly. I had major surgery as a teenager and while recovering I wasn't hungry and didn't want to eat for several days. Eventually my mom asked me to eat one corn muffin from the hospital lunch. To this day I will never forget that was the driest, hardest to muffin of my life. I chewed and chewed for quite sometime but couldn't swallow it. Anyway I'm fine now, but have trouble eating corn muffins to this day.

    Can i have your mp3 player when your dead? That wouldve made my decision at least a little more easier on who should be gone. The son crawling around cutting his hair and trying to do chores while the daughter is just sitting there saying she wants her brothers mp3 player when he dies. I give points on the effort to preserve ones life.

    I feel like this should be titled "summarized" instead of "explained" because all you really did was straight up recount the synopsis of what obviously happened without actually addressing any of the questions the audience had :)

    To me, the film juxtaposes two different popular ideologies about God and his punishment. There’s Farrell’s character: perhaps the more Calvinist picture of God where he’s actively in control of his family’s actions (always asking them to do things for him - chores, mashed potatoes) and ultimately who lives or dies. The family members end up trying to make him happy out of fear (his daughter’s “contrite” speech, his son’s haircutting etc., and his wife’s offering herself to him on the bed). He manages a household with minimal free will - especially in respect to the paralysis - and he is the image of a god who is actively the cause of everything important that happens - ie life and death (salvation v eternal suffering?). He even ends up sacrificing his son in the end. Then we have Martin. This portrayal is of a god who sets situations into motion, yet is not held responsible (to an extent) for the particulars of who lives or dies. He allows free will in the scenario he created. Do what I ask, or don’t. Consequences either way. This film, I believe, attempts to point out some criticism about both of these perspectives. It’s just a takeaway I had after watching. There is so much to explore in this movie and I know it’s influenced by Greek literature I’m not familiar with, but there’s my two cents.

    This should not be called "explained" and instead it should say "narrated". There is little to no analysis here or discussion of the point of the movie, what it is trying to say, etc. nor what the ending means - if it means anything more than just something that happened - or why this movie was so highly rated by critics (but less so by audiences).

  • Nina

    Thanks for the explanation! I really didn't enjoy this movie. I think I understand the meaning behind the characters being distant and unrelatable but I cared so little for them that the big climax of one of them getting shot just didn't feel very important. Also, the main driving burn of the movie was that the father needed to choose which family member to kill but in the end, he didn't even make a choice between them. It felt like a lot of wasted time.

    Sooooo, he could have told the wife i need to start seeing another woman as well otherwise you're all gonna die...seems like that would have been a much easier option than having to kill your child? Since that guy was trying to get the dad and his mum together for ages, he was trying to do things a less messed up way first tbh. Dad could have 2 woman to lay and just have a creepy step son to manage (which he was pretty much already doing) choice made seems non sensical...any guy would choose to have another wife instead of kill their child to restore the balance or whatever. Hadn't seen anyone else post this so let me know what ya think

    When Kim received a call from Martin at the hospital Martin told her to come by the window & boom she could walk again at that moment I thought Martin was a Hypnotist bcuz someone who can hypnotize can compel a person to be disabled or starved bcuz it's all in the mind if the mind believes the legs aren't working then the body does too

    I found it really boring and knew right away that the boy wanted revenge . The dialogs were queer but not in a good way . It was disturbing and boring imo . I can't understand how this got such good reviews . Just bc it's an A24 movie , doesn't mean it's good or "different" and groundbreaking lol. I'd rather watch Kaufman all day than to watch lanthimos's movies . I'm disappointed bc I'm Greek too and i expected something better , after seeing the critiques and all the hype .

    The only thing that makes me bad about this movie is how the brother just stayed silent about everything. Once I find out you're working with Martin or knew about all this I'm going to tell. I would made the decision for them, she the sacrifice. She betrayed the family
