The Favourite ★★★★★

OHFHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH MY GOD??????????????????????????????????????????
OH MY GOD???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

update now that i've gathered my thoughts: this is my favorite movie of the year. The Favourite is to Yorgos Lanthimos’s filmography what The Departed was to Scorsese’s: A burst of focused and uncompromising energy to remind you how long overdue the supremely talented filmmaker behind it is for acclaim and accolades. If you have any doubts about Lanthimos working off a screenplay that's not his own you need to dispel them immediately because he elevates this film far beyond anything, period piece or not, that you've seen before.

"i shall have you stripped and whipped."
"i'm waiting."
