The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★


Most likely my favourite Lanthimos film so far (haven't yet seen Dogtooth), just barely edging past The Lobster. Masterful lensing (those fisheye shots were near incredible) ably complemented by lush colours; and gorgeous as hell lighting choices that reminded me of Barry Lyndon no less.

All of it bolstered by three equally impressive performances, a quirky-as-hell screenplay executed to perfection and an increasingly unsettling score, as always. Less weird than his previous outings but more creative filmmaking undoubtedly. A technical masterpiece, no less.
