Beethoven, Shostakovich and Stravinsky all put in prominent appearances, but the most evocative selection here may well be Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue’s morbid country-Gothic ballad “Where the Wild Roses Grow,” with its plaintive plea for unrestrained love: “Do you know where the wild roses grow, so sweet and scarlet and free?” – Variety
Yorgos Lanthimos “has fully synthesized the what and the how of the movie into a truly original masterpiece.” – Cut Print Film

The film’s most spot-on musical moment is when the hotel manageress and her portly partner croon a cheesy version of Gene Pitney’s Something’s Gotten Hold of My Heart’. It’s a song that celebrates the emotional catharsis of true love: an enduring myth that The Lobster puts under the magnifying glass – in the sun, until it starts to burn. – Screen DailyA wickedly funny protest against societal preference for nuclear coupledom that escalates, by its own sly logic, into a love story of profound tenderness and originality.Guy Lodge, Variety
