The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★½

Ohhh my God, the second watch was even better than the first... yorgos lanthimos directed the hell outta this and it shows. The first half is a perfectly crafted power struggle, and I didn't think it could get any better, but the final act adds a whole new level of emotional depth you don't see coming. You're wrapped up in a kind of love story, but you don't realize until it's gotten to you. I was seriously on the verge of tears for much of the final act. This is deserving of all the awards this season, truly, and I hope it gets what it deserves.
