jordan’s review published on Letterboxd:
holy crap. i mean, i knew i was going to like a Yorgos Lanthimos movie featuring Emma Stone & Rachel Weisz about royalty in the 18th century, but i didn’t expect that. this is practically a perfect movie on every front imaginable - acting, writing, cinematography, directing, the set and costume designs, that score, the lighting, and editing. my one gripe is that i feel a couple scenes drag for a longer-than-necessary amount of time towards the tail end of the movie, but i’m sure i’ll be able to forgive that upon later viewings.
this movie rocks. i really liked it.
