From Greece comes this curiosity, Giorgos Lanthimos's drama about three people trying to reenact a scene of domestic violence for unknown ends. The woman in this hypothetical pas de trois is a seaside hotel maid. When she's not sleeping on the job, she's dragging herself in the dirt to make herself look beat up for the man directing this imagined altercation. Is he her lover, too? Who can say for sure? But his female death fetish is unmistakably banal. -- Wesley Morris
