The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★½

★ Gonzo's Top 10 Movies of 2018: #4

First, Maniac, and now, The Favourite. 2018 is Emma Stone's year, and I'm here for it.

Peak Emma Stone. An electrifying Rachel Weisz. A masterclass by Olivia Colman. And the second coming of Stanley Kubrick.

Eccentric. Devilish. Unhinged. Outrageous. A riveting royal madness. Yorgos Lanthimos' The Favourite is one of the best movies of the year. Highly recommended.
