Though he first came to attention as one of the leaders of the so-called Greek Weird Wave, Yorgos Lanthimos has always been more complex and harder to pin down than that term suggests. His cinema is, 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. As Lanthimos continues to realize his boldly iconoclastic vision on an ever more ambitious scale, he has proven himself the rare auteur whose films have the power to provoke and entertain in equal measure.
Organized by Florence Almozini and Dan Sullivan.
