The Favourite ★★★½

Enjoyed this more a second time around, even though I still consider it Lanthimos' weakest film so far.

Nice Barry Lyndon vibes and although I don't understand why he uses fish lenses in the scenes he does I do think they create a nice effect. But was not a fan of the chapter title cards which are rather random.

Overall it's a neat take on the corruptive power of Power which doesn't stop with men but can also captivate women like Sarah and Abigail.
