  • Doesn't rank as a great film, but it's difficult to take your eyes off it, as you wonder what impossibly bizarre thing might happen next. show more

  • The father is the only one who can leave the house to go to his factory job, and that seems like a paradise for viewers trapped watching this clinically shot claptrap. show more

  • Horror and cold humor commingle in Dogtooth, a Greek import whose screenwriters approach scenario construction like misanthropic social scientists planning an experiment -- one whose result suggests that governments might want to rethink policies allowing parents to home-school their children. show more

    Yes, very original and creative/imaginative. I was disgusted and I\'m surprised at the high ratings, it seemed very twisted and immoral, it turned my stomach and wanted to turn it off but my husband, who was also in shock about what it was about, ************* it, and at the end we had to switch to Jay Leno to get our minds off this dillusional and disturbing flick. There sooooo many things in this movie that my brain did NOT need to be aware of, it is unreal. Half of this stuff I didn\'t imagine existed, what kind of person thinks of all this neglect, abuse and vulgarity? UGHHHHH. I am forever traumatized.....
