The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★★

Relentlessly intense, exquisitely complex and wickedly fun. The Favourite is Yorgos Lanthimos’ magnum opus as it delightfully balances all of his usual idiosyncrasies while also expanding his filmmaking skills to new, exciting and preposterously ravishing territory. I adore every moment of this film. Brilliant editing, committing performances and playful yet steady direction. The eclectic score and menacing ending are an all-timer. God, this gets better every time.
