'Killing of a Sacred Deer' Takes Revenge to a Supernatural Extreme

It’s easy to imagine audiences won’t groove to something as nightmarish, determinedly weird and despairingly funny as The Killing of a Sacred Deer. Fine. Inoffensive remakes, spinoffs, superhero movies and other pablum get released weekly, so go see one of those instead. This one, a kind of horrific black comedy of vengeance, directed and co-written by Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster), may not be exactly groundbreaking or original either, but at least it’s done with high style, technical mastery and a singular, highly idiosyncratic vision.
