Freaks and Greeks
Let the peculiar pleasures of the Greek Weird Wave wash over you with a double dose of brilliantly provocative strangeness from two of the singular cinematic movement’s ringleaders. Konstantina Kotzamani’s faux nature documentary WASHINGTONIA evokes summertime ennui in a sweltering Athens via a menagerie of giraffes, beetles, poodles, and disaffected humans. It makes for an appropriately outré intro to Yorgos Lanthimos’s startlingly perverse international sensation DOGTOOTH, which introduced the world to one of the most dementedly dysfunctional families in all of cinema.
