The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★½

This is my favorite of Lanthimos’s films so far, & I don’t usually care for period pieces. The performances are flawless, especially Olivia Colman. Damn, where’s she been hiding? Or am I just out of the loop? The humor worked waaaay better here than in his previous films. Because he didn’t write the screenplay this time? If so, let’s have him continue adapting other people’s words. Also, how lovely are those wide-angle shots inside the palace? I even got Barry Lyndon vibes at times with all those candles. In closing, if Rachel Weisz could kindly make out with me, that would be great. Thanks.
