Overview

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. Hence ‘the sea’ refers to a large armchair and ‘zombies’ are little yellow flowers. Having invented a brother whom they claim to have ostracized for his disobedience, the uber-controlling parents terrorize their offspring into submission.

Length 94 minutes

Viewing Notes

There is no synopsis of Dogtooth’s plot line that can come anywhere near accurately describing how fucked up this movie is! And I mean that as a compliment.

This movie takes you so far out of your normal movie watching comfort zone, you might as well be on another planet. Who knew the Greeks were this batshit crazy?!

By far one of the best movies I’ve seen. Period. Loved the hell out of it.

Dogtooth is begging for a movie night rewatch and pairing it with Santa Sangre may just be the thing.
