Every once in a while, a wild hare will bite me and I’ll find myself checking out a film I’ve never heard of on a whim, and rarely I’ll have enough to say about it. One such film is Vivarium, a film starring Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots that debuted at the Cannes film festival in 2019.

The film follows a couple, a teacher and a handyman, as they seem to be getting ready to find a home to move into. They pop in to a store selling homes for a suburban housing development called Yonder, helmed by an absolutely bizarre salesman named Martin.
