The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★

Barry Lyndon with fish eye lenses, cattier dialogue, a cutting pace, and more mockery of ye olde European social formalities. Not necessarily a bad thing! I could watch a bunch more sardonic piss takes of aristocratic not-so-pleasantries. Replace the needy Queen and her yes court double and triple crossing for power with a skyscraper squatting one percenter who shits in a gold toilet while a revolving door of flunkies kiss his feet for personal gain to see how things haven't changed very much in the world money and politics!
