It’s challenging to sit with this level of darkness for so long, but what an unforgettable take on one of the DCEU’s most popular characters.
Too subtle and moody to leave much of a lasting emotional impact.
The studio dumped this trash heap on Disney+, and even the home streaming platform is far more than it deserves.
After all the pointless plot twists, gross overacting, and irritating visuals, all that’s left is a jumbled, disappointing mess of bloody brutality.
“Roman J. Israel Esq.” certainly is an ambitious mess.
“The Killing of a Sacred Deer” certainly is not for everyone, but those who appreciate the director’s previous work will find the film greatly rewarding.
