“I’m on my side, always”
SHEESH- what a film! What a fucking experience! How does one put into words this film? This story? The characters, so complex and wicked and wonderful? A marvellous, delicate firecracker of a film, that’s even more powerful and exciting on rewatch. The performances are absolutely killer, the writing is funny and bleak, the costumes are to die for, and Lanthimos’ direction and careful placement of each shot makes me drool. The type of film you wanna watch again and again, that gets under your skin and crawls into your mind and excites you. “The Favourite” lights a fire under me and watches me burn for two solid hours. God I love this film and these women so freakin much. Cinema has never recovered from this knockout.
