The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★★

My jaw hit the floor. Every aspect of this film is absolutely impeccable and I don't even know where to start. The three lead actresses are so insanely good, they might as well have been competing in their own power play to see who could out-act the other. Not that this should be a surprise with such a cast. It's a masterpiece on every artistic and technical scale, and if it doesn't sweep at the upcoming Academy Awards, it'll be proof (if the likely Toni Collette snub isn't enough), that awards shows don't like unconventional films. But because we watched Birdman win Best Picture in 2015, I can't say it's too much of a long shot to see this get something.

And the fisheye lens were great, y'all just hate fun.
