    ★★★★½

    Took me around 10/15 minutes to fully get into it (I've found that with previous Lanthimos films), but once 'in', it's devilishly perfect.

    The score is both gleeful and disturbing, the dialogue is fantastically funny and the use of tilt and dutch angles make for a fun, disorientating watch.

    Stone and Colman are wonderful but I think it's Rachel Weisz that steals the show for me – the best role of her career.

    Nauseatingly-cringe.

    Tries to do too many things at once (part-musical, racial tension, 80s tropes, coming-of-age, love story) and fails at all of them.
