Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Dogtooth (2009)

Father: The animal that threatens us is a "cat". The most dangerous animal there is. It eats meat, children's flesh in particular. After lacerating its victim with its claws, it devours them with sharp teeth. The face and whole body of the victim.

We missed it over the weekend so a slightly belated happy 10 to Yorgos Lanthimos' fantastical masterpiece Dogtooth, an aggressively strange film which inexplicably got nominated for Best Foreign Film that year, leading to Yorgos' swift (and richly deserved) spot in movie royalty. He gets nominated all the time now, and I don't know if we entirely appreciate how this is a crazy, crazy thing. It's crazy! For our ode to the film's cat murder scene click here -- and yes, I'm sure I'll get tons of clicks, promising cat murder. People love cat murder! I am giving the people what they want!
