The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★

Just two straight hours of fantastically written and sublimely delivered dry dark hilarious British snark and I am alllll here for it. The cast is all around amazing, Weisz and Hoult would have to be my two biggest highlights from the bunch (side shoutout to Horatio: The Fastest Duck in the City). I found myself getting very easily wrapped up in the everything (which is mostly thanks to Robbie Ryan's god-tier cinematography). The pace and build-up is probably the best yet from Lanthimos.

That is, at least, until the last chapter of the film which feels about five-times longer than it really is and wraps up in a way that I don't feel like Lanthimos & co. really ultimately earn or build up to that much in the end. Amazing stuff for the most part though, and I can EASILY see this being a rewarding re-watch.
