Trailer: L


We watched Dogtooth in one of the earliest Flixist Movie Club episodes, and to say it’s really, really weird is an understatement. The film’s writer, Efthimis Filippou has co-written L along with Dogtooth cinematographer Thimios Bakatakis, and, again, to say it’s really weird is an understatement. I’m just going to let the film’s synopsis speak for itself here.

A man lives in his car. He’s 40 and separated from his wife and kids, who live in a different car. They meet in parking lots. A professional driver, the man delivers honey to a narcoleptic man and often dreams of his friend, who was killed when a hunter mistook him for a bear. Frequently late delivering honey, the man is fired, and his driving skills are questioned. Thrust into existential uncertainty, he abandons “car life” and joins a rogue motorbike gang. 

I mean seriously. I really want to see this, because it just sounds so ridiculous. Who knew the Greeks were trail-blazing bizarre film making while their country went down the tubes? The film will be premiering at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, so we’ll hopefully be hearing a lot more about it in the near future. You can also find the film’s poster in the gallery below.
