Emma Stone plays a woman who gets a second chance in “Poor Things,” a new movie by Yorgos Lanthimos. Most people’s lives are made up of things they learn and things they do over time. The process that brings Stone’s Bella Baxter back to life happens very quickly. She was dead and floating in a river, but now she is back to life with the brain of her unborn child in her head.
Bella’s real name is Victoria, and she doesn’t care about being polite or following social rules. Stone plays her like a baby learning to walk and talk for the first time in her craziest performance to date. By the end of “Poor Things,” she speaks French well, is learning anatomy, and has a wide view of the world.
Even though the plots of Dogtooth and Alps are pretty easy, it’s not a Yorgos Lanthimos movie if you don’t have a “Ending Explained” story ready to go right after.
My Best Friend and Kinetta, which are his first two books, are almost impossible to find. But the director’s third and fourth works are very interesting, especially when compared to each other. He wrote two movies with Efthymis Filippou. Both of them are about making up a new world.
Dogtooth is almost like a made-up social experiment that tests the idea of children who were born in isolation and how their habits would be different from ours if they didn’t have a society to copy. When they are alone, they, well, do strange things.
They think there is a brother on the other side of their fence, so they throw food and rocks at him and play games to see how much pain they can handle. The parents’ story starts to fall apart when the older daughter, whose father (Christos Stergioglou) pays for them to have sex, asks a security guard (Christina, played by Anna Kalaitzidou) for Hollywood videotapes.
The kids were told a lie that they could leave the house when they lost their dogtooth. When the bad effects of Hollywood become clear, some people decide to leave their fake world and move to a real one.
They want to get back to real life, but they don’t know what that is. This leads to a tragedy that has nothing to do with the truth and everything to do with lies and a tough defense.
Alps is kind of the opposite of Dogtooth because it isn’t about people from a made-up world coming to the real world. Instead, it’s about real people who enter a world that was made up. Angeliki Papoulia, who played a grief counselor, became too attached to her role, which caused problems in the movie.
In an interview with Cineuropa, Lanthimos said that the only thing the two movies have in common is that they were both created by the same two people. Before he says this, he calls them enemies. In the Alps, the main character pretends to be someone else to get away from reality.
She gets so into her role that she breaks into the house of the people who are sad to keep the lie going, even though they don’t want it to. The Alps is also different from Lanthimos’s other movies because it’s not as funny as his other movies.
It takes place in dark rooms and shows sad people, while Dogtooth shows a lot of sun to show that the two things don’t go together. In both stories, people are trying to get away from something, whether it is the real world or a dream world.
Doesn’t matter if they know where they are going or not. People in all of Lanthimos’s movies feel like they don’t fit in and want to leave.
