The Vancouver International Film Festival runs Sept. 24 through Oct. 9. Each day, The Globe and Mail picks at least one must-watch film.
Six prosperous Greek men are hanging out on a luxury yacht, spear-fishing, swimming and dining when they decide to play a parlour game in which they will rate each other’s behaviour in a variety of contests. Who’s courageous enough to give blood? Who makes the most convincing phone call home? And yes, who has the biggest dick. The increasingly absurd results provide a sly and amusing satire of masculine competitiveness directed by Athina Tsangari, who was the producer on Yorgos Lanthimos’s Oscar-nominated Dogtooth. The film is made watchable by a strong cast that renders the men’s vulnerability particularly sympathetic.Report Typo/Error
