The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★

My least fav Yorgos Lanthimos film that I’ve seen, but that still places it in “very good” territory. It’s a dark comedy of manners involving people who have no manners. Pretty sure half of them are syphillitic too. Might benefit from a second viewing, and even if it doesn’t, the lush production design warrants many more viewings anyway. 

Pretty much the entire film is shot with a fish eye lens. Yorgos, you crazy. 

Also, every single performance is DELICIOUS.
