FSLC announces Yorgos Lanthimos, a five-film retrospective

The Film Society of Lincoln Center announces Yorgos Lanthimos, a five-film retrospective of the boldly iconoclastic director, February 1-5. Though Yorgos Lanthimos first came to attention as one of the leaders of the so-called Greek Weird Wave, his cinema has always been more complex and harder to pin down than that term suggests. His films are, to be sure, wondrously, imaginatively bonkers (what other director would make a courtly costume drama that so prominently features duck racing?), but they are also wickedly funny, impeccably stylized, and piercingly insightful about the human condition, owing as much to Luis Buñuel as they do to Greek mythology.
