The Favourite ★★★★★

Spectacular in just about every way; Lanthimos’ screenplay is magnetic and beautifully translated to the screen. Stone, Colman, and Weisz bring their characters to life with such grace and electricity that it’s hard to wonder how there weren’t three best actress oscars handed out this year, and beyond that the craftsmanship is to die for. Ryan’s cinematography is technically perfect - rich, textured, sumptuous, varied, and weird in the right ways - and the editing is really ethereal.
