Abstract

An analysis of Yorgos Lanthimos's Dogtooth, in which parents create a totally insular, weirdly theatrical, and sometimes brutal world for their children. To what extent does this blackly comic, almost Dadaist horror show show reveal wider truths about what Badiou calls today's “pathogenic” families?
