The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★

Grandiose, humourous, enthralling and just ball of joy to watch. This was the first Yorgos Lanthimos's film I've watched and I can confidently say that I'm fan of his eccentric style of directing. The lavish and surreal storytelling which is anchored by the seamless use of pitch black comedy and outstanding acting ensemble further elevated the watching experience.

Nevertheless, I do admit that the absurdism element of the film can be a bit distracting at times and I'm not really a huge fan of the camera-work in it. All in all, I had a blast watching this especially considering that the film itself reminds me of The Great, which is one of my favourite show at the moment!!
