The Favourite

The Favourite ★★

Well, I have never watched a film quite like that before. Was it well made? Yes, absolutely, for the most part. But was it enjoyable? Not. At. All. 

Uncomfortable, grotesque, ugly, pretentious; are all words that come to mind when I look back on the experience. 

I am unfamiliar with the filmmaker and have zero interest in exploring he oeuvre if this is his most accessible work. 

The costumes and sets were all fantastic, although poorly lit and framed for the most part. The performances as well were outstanding however do little to make the film as a whole watchable. 

In my humble opinion, a masterpiece this is not.
