30- Dogtooth [8.0]

Three teenagers are confined to an isolated country estate that could very well be on another planet. The trio spend their days listening to endless homemade tapes that teach them a whole new vocabulary. Any word that comes from beyond their family abode is instantly assigned a new meaning.

What were to happen if a father decided to raise his kids as if they were an experiment? The twisted Dogtooth puts a family like that on display, but it doesn’t succumb to simply being exploitation. Sure, there are some fairly graphic and odd scenes, but considering the circumstances these teenagers are put in, it all falls into the realm of some type of possible reality. Dogtooth doesn’t speed along, but you may find yourself engrossed by this fucked up family. By the end, you might even start appreciating your own a bit more.

    This is quite possibly the most uncomfortable movie i’ve ever watched. As for me, while i usually don’t mind a bit of uncomfortableness in my movies, i think it got too much for me in this one. It seemed present in every scene from start to finish, and i felt like there wasn’t any warmth or anything to lighten it a little.
