The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★

- I know I harp a lot on costume period films, but I wouldn’t if more of them were made like this

- Good on Rachel Weisz for starring in the two big arthouse lesbian movies of 2018

- “I like the way she puts her tongue inside me” should become the movie catchphrase of the year and dethrone “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn” on the AFI Top 100 quotes

- This is Lanthimos’ most accessible work, and I’m still marinating on how much that’s a good thing. But I do like knowing he’s not misanthropic so much as he hates the trappings of civilization
