This review is from: Dogtooth [DVD] (2009) (DVD)
DOGTOOTH is a darkly comic portrayal of the twisted lives of a bizarre and disturbed family. The parents keep their children in a closeted world where they dare not leave the grounds of their home for fear of their lives. This is car-crash cinema. It's riveting in its nihilistic depiction of casual sex and violence, and it gleefully pushes a number of taboos. The parents' motives remain ambiguous. Are they overprotective or just unhinged? Whatever their motives this is captivating viewing that will leave you pondering its meaning and significance even though you'll probably suspect it has neither. Oh, and there's some great dancing!
