Rob Andrews’s review published on Letterboxd:
“Sometimes a lady likes to have some fun.”
This is such a funny movie and it’s all comes down to the Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone. They all give such fantastic performances and deliver the films biting dialogue with such venom and it really makes the film what it is. The Favourite really lives and dies by those three performances and the three of them should all be winning Best Actress.
To start with, Yorgos Labthimos’ style didn’t really work for me. He using these fish eye lends shots to add this weird nature to the film but after seeing it used a few times, it grew on me.
