WARNING: there are spoilers in this review. Spoilers that will definitely affect your first viewing of the film. Just sayin’.
I’m going to tell you about a film I recently saw. Pity (2018) is a Greek film directed by Babis Makridis.

Filippou has previously written two other films which will forever hold a place in my heart and in my film recommendations, namely the Greek film Dogtooth (2009) and The Lobster (2015). Both those films are award-winning works directed by Yorgos Lanthimos.

George Miller is a Swiss army knife of talents. His biggest claim to fame is his YouTube channel, TVFilthyFrank, with 5.2 million subscribers. His online alter-ego, Filthy Frank, can be described as nasty, painfully politically incorrect, and an anti-vlogger. Besides Filthy Frank’s content, TVFilthyFrank also hosts the music videos to Miller’s other alter-ego: Pink Guy. Over the past few years, Miller has released three Pink Guy mixtapes. Pink Guy’s music can be described as comedy rap full of memes with some pretty sick beats.
