I was really starting to get into it after about an hour but my god was the last half hour dreary. The cinematography felt all over the place. The script is as sharp and funny as expected but I don't think the actual story holds up, also as expected. There's 3 or 4 absolutely cracking scenes.

All I know is your carriage is waiting and my maid is on her way up with something called a pineapple.

Are you here to seduce me, or rape me?
I'm a gentleman.
So rape then.

(Honestly, I was really enjoying this film and then I took a break during Abigail's wank scene (the hetero one) to see Dominic Cummings talk about going to Durham and when I came back I was bored for the rest of it.)
