When I first saw this movie I thought it was great, but I didn't really get into it because of all the other ones I had seen before it. But when I saw the DVD I saw that I had seen it all before and this one wasn't as good as the others, but it was still good. I'm giving this a 10/10, because it's an excellent movie, but it is also a good movie that can be watched again and again.

This is the most graphic, disturbing, and terrifying movie I have ever seen. It is almost impossible to describe what this movie is about. If you haven't seen it yet, go see it! This movie is not for the weak of heart. In fact, this movie will scare you so hard that it will make you lose control of your own life and your own body! It is quite possibly the most terrifying movie I have ever seen! This movie also has a very strong message. I know that this movie can be a little disturbing for some people to watch. But this movie really has a message to it and it is a powerful message. I highly recommend this movie to anyone that is scared of any kind of movies. If you have never seen a horror movie, you are probably going to be scared the first time you see this movie. If you have seen a horror movie, you should definitely see this one. You will never look at your house the same way again after seeing this movie!

It is not every day you get to see a movie that was written by the same people that brought us the Matrix and Fight Club. If you are looking for something a little different, and you are not a fan of either, then this is the movie for you. From beginning to end, I was at the edge of my seat. I have to give this movie a 10, because it was so much better then I thought it would be. It is scary, gory, and it is also very interesting. If you like movies like Matrix and Fight Club, this is the movie for you. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Wow. Really nice movie. Really got my attention. A very interesting story. Lots of mysterious and very good actors, very good acting. Really, really.Really. Good. The story is not straightforward and the mystery is kind of a hint about a future threat. Good movie. Highly recommended.

This film is fascinating, and at the same time is extremely sad. What makes this film so different from other thrillers is the language, which gives the film a very different feel. As well as this, it has no real ending. This means that, although the story will continue in some form, there will be no real ending. The only ending you can see is that the new murderer will be caught. While this may sound unrealistic, this is how it was portrayed in the film. There are several scenes in this film which will make you look at the murder scenes in Psycho a bit differently. Although many of the murders may not seem to be very realistic, the acting, and the "sleepwalk" make the murder scenes seem more realistic, instead of just being simply done to be scary. I was surprised to see that the director gave this film a 12 certificate. It is clear that the director knows this film is really unusual, and if he were to make another film it would have to be rated 12. The use of the camera shows the director is very concerned about the plot and not using the camera as a gimmick to get a higher rating. The use of the camera is very creative, and I liked it. The film does have many minor flaws, however it is still a very interesting and suspenseful film.

The movie has a lot of hidden symbolism. As I've been reading comments on the internet I've come across quite a few comments that mention "the redemption of the brother" and the father's hand in the killing. I think a lot of people would have understood it if they have read some of the other comments. The only reason I am not giving it 10 is because it is very slow at times. I found the way they were shot to be interesting as well. The two brothers share a lot of chemistry, especially when they are together. I think that the two brothers are quite different. The older brother is a complete jerk. The younger brother is much more patient and doesn't need to be told what to do. I would have to say that the older brother is the least likable of the three. However, the younger brother is the most sympathetic. I think that both brothers are good people who are being wronged. There are some wonderful scenes that were omitted from the DVD version. I think the title is misleading. I would have liked to have seen a scene where the older brother has a flashback of what happened when he was younger and the younger brother is watching. It would have made more sense and maybe revealed a bit more of what happened.

I must first admit that I had no interest in seeing this movie when I went to see it. Being an obvious and dedicated movie critic, I never thought I'd be interested in the making of a movie, let alone have it brought to me. I was even more surprised that I actually liked the movie. I was able to understand how the characters were becoming psychotic in such a way that they could not see the horror of what they were doing. I was absolutely thrilled to find out that it was the director's idea, and the same was true of all of the acting in the film. I am also impressed with the way it has been brought to the American audience. The language, the cinematography, the soundtrack. I was completely amazed at how good it was all around, and most importantly, how many people actually enjoyed it. A lot of people may think that there is no point in showing a person suffering from a mental illness in a movie, but I am not one of those people. This movie is definitely going to be talked about long after it comes out. No doubt, I will be talking about it for the rest of my life.

There's so much to like about The Killing of a Sacred Deer. Most of it stems from the two leads. Sophia Coppola and Michael Wincott are incredible, conveying a lot of warmth and humanity and also playing off of each other quite well. They are two actors who are both talented but can also be very annoying. Their characters' relationship, the motivations behind it, and the various repercussions are all well-developed, and perfectly balanced. I'm also very impressed with Director Neil Jordan's work. The way he uses the camera is extremely impressive. Even if you don't have any idea how he does it, it's hard not to stare at the camera while you're watching something. The cinematography is also fantastic, with all the dirt and fog on the screen seeming very realistic. The camera never lingers or jumps, just keeps rolling through, giving it a quality that I can't really put my finger on. While there are some flaws with the film, I do think there are plenty of strengths. Some of the most interesting moments take place within the psychological frame of the film. The first half is full of tense and oppressive imagery, but the second half pushes all that aside and turns into a playful thriller. We're introduced to a couple of characters and what happens to them is interesting. The end is completely unexpected, and it's great fun to find out exactly how it plays out. Overall, this is a very well-made film. The performances are top-notch, the direction is great, and the cinematography is top-notch, leaving the audience with a good feeling. I'm not normally a fan of supernatural thrillers, but this is one of the few that I really enjoyed, and I'm willing to buy this on DVD. It's on par with Orphan, and has better action and production values than that film, too. It's certainly not for everyone, but it's definitely an entertaining watch.
