Dogtooth 8/10 (rating adjusted)
'Dogtooth' is a really bizarre film that reveals the dangers of overprotectiveness, social isolation, and censorship. Be warned, it is disturbing and rather sexually explicit. The father is a control freak and through his exacting manipulations, he projects his insanity onto his wife, son, and two daughters. He creates a hellish, sheltered world of mind games, athletic challenges, childish competitions, false vocabulary, and fearmongering. The children are not feral; they seem to have a normal intellect that is hampered by their father's absurd alternate reality, which makes the film even more frightening. Their only escape, discovered by accident, is media from the outside world, sex, and violence. But how long can the father's charade last?
