The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★½

Yorgos Lanthimos seems to be having the most fun of any filmmaker working today. The twisted web that is the Favourite is all the evidence you need for that.

Each character is written and performed so as to be simultaneously delightful to watch and eery behold.   

Every decision is wholly unexpected yet entirely necessary to making this film what it is. 

In short Yorgos is a master and I’m eager to watch the rest of his filmography.
