The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★½

I love Horatio with of all my heart

One of the main things that popped out at me while i was watching this was the camera work. The use of the fish eye lens, the cinematography, the zooming out and the transitioning are all so incredible.

Another thing that I noticed that works exceptionally well was the score. The classical music that played through parts of the movie was truly amazing.

Overall, The Favourite shines as a beautiful portrayal of love and affection doubled by the retaining pessimistic view on human nature that Lanthimos takes. I feel like the film also shows how our yearnings of love and affection are destroyed by a social structure.


Quality: 93
Enjoyment: 95
