The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★

A wonderful and disturbing piece. My second favo(u)rite from Yorgos Lanthimos after "The Killing of a Sacred Deer". Every scene is dripping with atmosphere and meticulous direction, and the three leads were gripping.

It's completely vile in nature, but the fact that it's almost entirely conveyed implicitly is astounding. Few other directors could pull that off.
