The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★½

This one is a huge thinker, definitely a lot darker tone than I was expecting. Not in a bad way though. Yorgos comes through yet again walking the tightrope between absurdist dark comedy and agreessively sharp tragedy. It’s that sort of contrast and juxtaposition that makes him one of the most interesting voices in modern filmmaking. 

All 3 leading women give incredible performances, and damned if at least one of them doesn’t win an Oscar (but all of them could and should). 

The music and cinematography work in absolute harmony to create that signature Yorgos tone that we’ve come to know and love. Some stunning shots and very interesting camera work. 

That’s all I can spill out of my head right now, I’m going to have to think on this one. I do know though, that this is one of the best films of 2018. Period.
