The Favourite ★★★★★

Now this might be Yorgos most grounded and accessible film
... but it sure does not lose any of its strange and weirdly powerful aspects. This movie has some of the best dialouge of the year, only strengthened by Olivia Coleman's tragic and yet juvenile fragility in her role as Queen Anne. Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone also give great performances. Yargos visually out did himself this time and it's too bad some of the sharpest writing and intriguing characters weren't created by him. But alas the power play and dynamics of this almost two hour game is a must watch
