carmen margarita’s review published on Letterboxd:
BFI LONDON FILM FESTIVAL — FILM #16
“he’s completely cuntstruck by you.”
i’m fucking cuntstruck.
god all i really have to say is that i cannot wait for the Phantom Thread-esque memes of The Favourite to prevail!!!!!!! cuntstruck is already a prevalent word in my vocabulary now and i’m abt to call the next person i see a badger.
what am i even supposed to write here that isn’t obvious when you watch it??? it’s visually gorgeous, it’s hilarious, it’s take on power dynamics is thrilling, it’s score is riveting. someone needs to make sure that olivia colman, emma stone and rachel weisz all get best Actress noms and ALL win in a tie. it’s perfect. yet another damn masterpiece from yorgos lanthimos.
the rest of this is going to be a mini quote post. i would quote the whole film if i could, but my mental storage doesn’t hve the capacity for that.
ps: emma stone i love u, i will do anything for u, i will die for u. plz manipulate me and ruin my life.
“i am as hard as a rock and it is our wedding night.”
^ I’M PRETTY SURE THIS IS MY FAVOURITE SCENE OUT OF EVERYTHING FROM THE ENTIRE FILM I DEADASS COULD NOT STOP CRYING LMFAOOOOOOO.
“your mascara’s running, if you want to fix it we can continue this later.”
”these wigs are too much.”
”a man must be pretty.”
”i’ll have you stripped and whipped.”
”i’ll be waiting.”
“you need to dismiss her.”
“i don’t want to, i like it when she puts her tongue inside me.”
