"Do you understand? It's metaphorical. My example, it's a metaphor. I mean, it's uh... it's symbolic." -The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017)

The Killing of a Sacred Deer is intensely written, well-shot, skillfully acted, and surprisingly dark. This movie will make you uncomfortable. It's one of those movies that you need to think and even by thinking you may still not be able to understand it. You will have to rewatch this movie to understand what the director actually means to tell us. Barry Keoghan a.k.a Martin gives an excellent performance.

This movie is unique and deeply affecting.

If you believe that a movie is good only if you are able to understand it without the need of any reading, considerable thinking etc. then of course this is not a movie for you.

My final verdict: There are movies that are self-explanatory and there are movies like this one. A metaphorical-masterpiece and definitely a must-watch movie.

My overall score: 8.1⭐/10

Rotten Tomatoes: 80% / 63% (audience score) Available on: NETFLIX
