Little White Lies #103 - Kinds of Kindness

Yorgos Lanthimos never disappoints. After plunging us into the wild bacchanalian depths of Poor Things earlier this year – which we plunged into for our 101st issue – the Greek director is now firmly resettling back to his roots. A more contemporary time and place makes up the setting for yet another of his deranged explorations of the human condition, this time in the form of an anthology told in three seemingly unconnected parts.

Kinds of Kindness sees Lanthimos reuniting with trusty screenwriter Efthimis Filippou, with whom he co-wrote the screenplays for Dogtooth Alps, The Lobster and The Killing of a Sacred Deer. Using a small ensemble of regulars and newcomers in different roles, the duo are once more brandishing their penchant for blowing provocative imagery out of proportion with sharp, absurdist humour whilst weaving characters in and out of each others’ lives. There’s tonnes to unpack within this nasty triptych of cerebral stories, where submission, manipulation, toxicity and control are turned into “kinds of kindness”.
