The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★½

The Favourite is my second Lanthimos movie, after The Killing of a Sacred Deer. 

This is near flawless. It’s hilarious and it’s dramatic moments/scenes are as effective, crafting something that is a brilliant display of two women looking to continually get the upper hand on the other, grasping for power. The performances from all three main actresses are incredible, but, surprisingly to me, Stone was the most entertaining to watch. Everything else: the direction, script, design are superb and this will end the oscars with at least six to its name.
