Markella’s review published on Letterboxd:
Yorgos seems to be making his filmography more accessible with each one he makes and I don’t see this as a bad thing! The Favourite is bespeckled with odd ways of speaking, blatant sexual oddities, off thinking, and mesmerizing imagery thankfully presented on the big screen. Easing up on his signature animal abuse themes as only he can. Greece has major animal issues so I’m happy to see him learn.
And being Greek myself I love to play the That’s So Greek game, like the wide planked wooden floors of the palace. That’s So Greek! In Greece everything is made out of marble and concrete. It’s cheaper and keeps cool. Wood in Greece is luxurious and expensive. You want to be exotic? Wood flOors @_@.
And Rachel Weisz, continuing to be the real life manifestation of everything I’ll ever want in a lady, and yet she persists. How much more can I take? She shines like Jesus
