In 2015, Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos' unleashed his latest absurdist film The Lobster to the film festival circuit and was immediately hailed by the film community. The story about a lonely man desperately seeking a mate under the threat of being turned into an animal was praised as either disturbing dystopic vision or askew metaphor for the absurd social pressures in regards to partnering. But does the film succeed in it's goals or should it be turned into the one thing no one ever wishes to become? Join us as we bid farewell to our own crustacean co-host Jonolobster in the final episode of 2016.
