Films that become paintings: the evocative scene of The Lobster

The Lobster –

For the #MadVision column this time we inaugurate the format “Films that become paintings” recalling a legendary scene from the film The Lobster by Yorgos Lanthimos. Do you remember her?

The objective of the review Films that become Paintings that I started some time ago on my Instagram profile @MadRaine8 is to select some frames from films that have left their mark on the history of cinema, scenes that in my opinion would look great hung on the wall like real works of art.

In this episode I chose a moment of the famous and evocative The Lobster by the brilliant Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos with Colin Farrell protagonist sitting by the pool with a white bathrobe and a “relaxed” physical shape. You can see my post below.

The cinema of Yorgos Lanthimos

This film struck me a lot for the infinite and profound parallels with which the narrative web is soaked, as for the sensitivity with which it decides to stage everything. Lanthimos’ cinema is very metaphorical and visionary and, if you want to deepen the topic and learn more about his filmography, you can catch up on the live we did on MadRog Cinema below.

The surgical precision of this Greek auteur is both mental and technical and his films manage to enrapture you in every sense. The Lobster is set in a dystopian future where all the singles are taken to a hotel where they have 45 left to find the perfect match. If they fail they are turned into an animal forever.

In the cast beyond Farrell, other A-series stars shine like Rachel Weisz, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, John C. Reilly, Olivia Colman. Have you already seen it or are you thinking of recovering it?
