showtimes and tickets

A hyper-stylized mixture of physical violence and verbal comedy, Dogtooth is a darkly funny look at three teenagers confined to their parents’ isolated country estate and kept under strict rule and regimen — an inscrutable scenario that suggests a warped experiment in social conditioning and control. Terrorized into submission by their father, the children spend their days devising their own games and learning an invented vocabulary (a salt shaker is a “telephone,” an armchair is “the sea”) — until a trusted outsider, brought in to satisfy the son’s libidinal urges, plans the seeds of rebellion by trading VHS tapes for sexual favors.


"The movie is a cool, eerie commentary on family dynamics and the dangerous power of adolescent sexual curiosity."
-Entertainment Weekly

"Somewhere up in the heaven he didn’t believe in, Buńuel is doubtless smiling approvingly."
-Film Comment

I see aprox 25 movies a month, and this is by far the most bizarre and twisted flick I have ever seen. It takes awhile to get started....but when it does, god help us all. After iit was over I sat in my seat and laughed maniacly. My boyfriend and I can't wait to take unsuspecting friends and relive it through their eyes. A must see for geminis and the people who love them.

a cat with a hammer came in and ssmhaed the brothers knee and left through the window, and the parents are forced to believe elder's lie, was one of the best scenes, i thought.
