Film Review: THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER Has a Memorable, Cruel Heart

Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster) makes movies such that, when the credit rolls, you will be horrified and disgusted, and you will surely talk about what you just saw and probably remember it forever.

There’s a lot to talk about this week, and El Fanboy host Mario-Francisco Robles covers it all.
