Movies and a Microphone, Episode 12: The Lobster

By Scott Pukos
scott@thelittle.org

At it's core, the plot of The Lobster is gloriously imaginative: Single people have 45 days to find a partner ... or they're turned into an animal of their choice. In a way, it's a charming idea, but the film from director Yorgos Lanthimos is deeper than that. It's also surprisingly dark, and hilariously deadpan. Needless to say, it's a talker. And that's exactly what we did on this episode of Movies and a Microphone: The Little Podcast. We also ask the most important question of all: What animal would you choose to be?
