"...The patriarchy gets another lashing from Yorgos Lanthimos in his latest film allegory The Killing of a Sacred Deer. The Greek filmmaker takes no prisoners in this story that is loosely connected to the Greek myth of Iphigenia, who was sacrificed to the gods by her father King Agamemnon..."
"...The Deer celebrates it sophomore album this week. On the Essence of the Indomitable Spirit no doubt had something to do with KUTX making the locals its December band of the month..."
"...The idea of a vengeful god is not about supernatural cruelty: It instead adds some logic to the capricious whims of an unfeeling universe. When, as in The Killing of a Sacred Deer, that divine wrath comes from Barry Keoghan as a reserved but determined teenager, then a blindly arbitrary cosmos may seem preferable...."
"...Travis County may have discovered a way to combine redneck and gangsta cultures, through gunplay no less all in the name of deer-population control...."
"...Dear Editor, Have you ever heard a deer bleating? Maybe out in the woods, but I have been hearing this deer bleating in distress since last night, and I live in the city, in an apartment complex in North Austin, near development and construction. It's heartbreaking..."
"...Dear Editor, Elisabeth Ruggles laments homeless deer bleating in distress outside her apartment, saying development demolished their habitat for "whatever it is [developers] are going to build" ["Postmarks," April 30]. Sympathizing with her broken heart, I hope she seriously considers its cause, gets it repaired, and moves on with her life..."
"...No matter how sensitive we tried to be to the land and the environment during construction, at the very least we destroyed the dwellings of countless bugs and disturbed the peace of many critters that inhabit the canyon below our house. Despite our intrusion, however, we had irrefutable evidence -- sightings of wild turkey, ringtail cats, rock squirrels, a gray fox, raccoon, blue heron, hawks, and deer -- that we could coexist together..."
"...“Into the night I’m staying/ It’s getting later, later/ I wake up on the farm / And I get made fun of,” sings Grace Park, the hummingbird-voiced songwriter behind local indie folk herd the Deer, on “Up Into Roses.”..."

"...Fantastic Fest Day Zero kicked off with a press screening of Zombieland and the grand opening of The Highball, bowling alley/bar/karaoke heaven/Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar adjunct, and -- whoa! -- deer, lasers, and enough crimson vinyl to outfit Winger, Warrant, and Whitesnake!..."
"...Raised game has no hormone or steroid injections and, for the most part, is not exposed to pesticides.A Venerable Enterprise in a New Locale It isn't that the idea of keeping game (broadly defined as wild animals suitable for human consumption) is a new one. Fallow deer, gazelle, and antelope were kept in captivity in Sinai in 21st-century BC; ancient Egyptians also adopted the practice..."

"...– one of many that belched smoke into the skies of the towns throughout America’s Rust Belt, leaving a permanent fog of gray soot in the atmosphere that grows ever more bleak as the mills and factories continue to downsize and close, leaving the region’s workers as hopeless as the landscape. With its settings and themes, the film that Out of the Furnace calls to mind more than any other is The Deer Hunter...."
"...Also there is the home’s caretaker, Carmen (Zurer). While out on a walk with Joseph, Freeway chases after a passing deer and is never seen again until the film’s final frames..."
"...First-time director Martini co-wrote the script with his brother Steven, but the story, apart from using Lyme disease as a metaphor for the vague discontent that ails us all (or ailed us, since the film is set in the late Seventies), sheds little new light on our fatuous lives. Lymelife comes across as though someone tossed The Ice Storm, The Deer Hunter, and The Squid and the Whale in a blender and punched puree: The result is more watered-down mash than solid substance..."
"...Open Season follows this formula to the letter; for directors Allers, Culton, and Stacchi, there’s obviously safety in box-office numbers. Open Season’s tale of a domesticated grizzly bear, Boog (Lawrence); his sidekick, Elliot (an antic mule deer voiced by Kutcher); and their quest to find their way back home after being deposited deep in the woods – fighting off a delusional hunter and becoming best friends as they go – is long on manic energy and bathroom humor but short on real storytelling, emotion, or characters..."
"...The Ring Two suffers from narrative listlessness and a general sense of "so what?" Worse than that, however, is the utter lack of scares. This is, after all, a horror film, and one expects at least one or two good frissons along the way, but no, the creepiest scene we get involves an angry deer and a lonely forest road..."
"...In Silver City the locale is Colorado and the subject is a fictitious gubernatorial campaign. The candidate is Dickie Pilager, who is brilliantly played by Chris Cooper (Adaptation) in a near mimicry of the speech patterns of our current grammatically challenged president and his deer-caught-in-the-headlights look whenever the discussion strays off script..."
"...Once there, Jimmy stumbles on the summer home of the ravioli kingpin, and, well, trouble naturally ensues. Shot in the traditional NYC grit-o-vision, Veronis manages to keep things light and breezy until about a third of the way through, when the film takes a turn into the netherworld of deer-laden dream imagery and mano-a-mano emotional meltdown..."
"...All four of the leads are perfect here, with Bates' high-strung, petulant Maurine Collier coming across as June Cleaver gone to hell, and Sheen's patriarch a no-nonsense all-American dad, clueless in the face of this wartime broadside that's engulfed his precious home. The War at Home isn't perfect; at times an overt preachiness comes to the fore, and Jeremy's backstory sometimes seems thin and questionable, but those minor quibbles aside, it's undoubtedly one of the most riveting portrayals of Vietnam's impact on the American family since Michael Cimino's The Deer Hunter..."
"...Or worse than nothing. Cimino had his Deer Hunter and Lehmann had his Heathers, but neither one has done anything of note since then..."
"...Massachusetts outfit Speedy Ortiz's sophomore album is a biting, brooding affair: a Nineties feminist soundscape stippled with dissonance often verging on sinister, and wielding brainy guitar lines and lyrics. The tracks on Foil Deer thus hover between vulnerable and aggressive..."

"...Yes, development decreases habitat.

"...Dear Editor, Re: Amy Quartermain's “Postmark” Aug. 19: Did you see Bambi one too many times or run out of your medication? "Inconsequential" who "screwed the ecosystem"?

"...The family still uses the same blend of spices they did in the 1800s. Says Leach, "We are very old-school; we have some of the last of the old-style butchers and we still bring in carcass beef."

"...Over the past few years, elk ranches across the country have seen a rise in the number of reported instances of CWD, a fatal disease related to Mad Cow Disease that causes elk and deer to lose weight, slobber, and act strangely. The elk ranches either provide "canned hunts," breed the animals for meat or to sell to other ranchers, or in some cases harvest their antlers, which are used in Asian medicine and are considered quite valuable..."

"...Squirrels you would expect to encounter on the grounds of Laguna Gloria, and perchance deer or even the odd fox, but feral hogs?

You needn't fear getting gored or trampled, though; these "tush hogs," as they're colloquially known down South, have no tusks or even legs..."
