The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★

"You might want to use gloves."

A pretty standout period flick from 2018 with a trio of fantastic performances, lush set design, crisp camerawork, and wry humor. I dig the 6 or 7 chapter breaks and I got major 'Phantom Thread' vibes with a lot of 'Barry Lyndon', which is an obvious comparison.

Makes me want to see 'Killing of a Sacred Deer' or 'Dogtooth' now!
