The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★½

69

Such a slinky, stubborn, lavish romp that its inevitable turn into tragedy and melancholy, as sharp and anticipated as it is, is still disappointing, probably because I wanted more of that first hour, forever and ever. Sadly subtle on the kink, but it's the thought that counts. Besides that, Lanthimos takes advantage of every nook and cranny of the locations, and the three performances are perfect. Truly perfect. Extra half-star for those rabbits. They owned the castle.
