Have you lost your DOGTOOTH yet? Have you seen the best film of the year, the Cannes Film Festival Prix Un Certain Regard winning Greek mind-bending, heart-wrenching DOGTOOTH? If not, you have made many grave mistakes in your life. I bet you drink decaf coffee. I bet you wear argyle socks with dark blue suits. Shame on you.
Don't worry. You can fix these things in your life. Change your socks. Drink a couple of Caffè macchiatos. And for goodness' sake, see DOGTOOTH. See it a lot. See it Sunday at the VIllage. See it Monday. It will be playing twice more after that, and you're encouraged to attend those screenings as well. Strongly encouraged.
DOGTOOTH is for me the greatest film of the year. If you want to read about it, please check out this earlier blog post. But I also want to recommend seeing it cold, knowing that it gets one of the strongest recommendations a film could get from an Alamo programmer.
Trust me - if you see one film this year, it should be this. If you see lots of films this year, this should be one of them. It's got crazy people in it. It's got a lot of weird sex. It's also one of the smartest satires of humanity that has ever played in a movie theatre. Check out the trailer if you don't believe me:
