I love me some Yorgos Lanthimos, and this bizarre, hilarious, beautifully crafted period piece represents the director at his very best.

The Favourite sees Yorgos Lanthimos balancing a period setting against rich, timely subtext - and getting roundly stellar performances from his well-chosen stars.

The Favourite is one of the very best movies of 2018 and one of the greatest period movies ever made! It’s one of the most different and unorthodox movie experiences I’ve ever sat through in my life. Royal lesbian love, duck racing, 18th century crude humor, and an insane Queen are just one of many aspects keeping this movie alive! Widespread critical acclaim go out to the direction, screenplay, cinematography, production, costumes, and the performances (particularly Colman, Weisz, and Stone)!
