Pretty Much Pop #170: Poor Things and Other Yorgos

Mark, Lawrence, Sarahlyn, and Al discuss the 4-Oscar-winning film Poor Things as well as the other creations of writer/director Yorgos Lanthimos, including most notably The Lobster, Dogtooth, and The Killing of a Sacred Deer. These films mix high concepts, purposively stilted line-readings, and increasingly rich cinematography with horror and gross sex.

Watch the dance scene from Dogtooth.
