Hugely entertaining film from start to finish, with amazing performances from the three lead women. Emma Stone proves that once again she’s not just a pretty face as the conniving and troubled Abigail, Rachel Weisz is always on form as the controlling and vindictive Sarah and Olivia Coleman deserved the Oscar as the childish and sickly Queen Anne. Nicholas Hoult’s foppish rogue Harley steals every scene he is in.
Yorgos Lanthimos once again has made a beautifully shot film using mostly natural light. I can’t overstate that this film looks gorgeous. Many times over I thought of Barry Lyndon, but with tonnes of humour, foul language, and no Ryan O’Neal to destroy the soul of the film.
I originally gave this 9/10 because I didn’t like the use of fish-eye lens, but I couldn’t stop thinking of how much I enjoyed it so I bumped it up to 10.
Best film I have seen in a very long time.
Overrated? Most assuredly, but utterly engaging from beginning to end. Not Yorgos’ most humorous piece, but technically sound and brilliantly acted.
_Final rating:★★★ – I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
Yorgos Lanthimos Takes On Old-Fashioned England
The Favourite was not what I expected. This isn’t classic Yorgos Lanthimos, this is a whole new, more whimsical Yorgos Lanthimos, approached parallel to his usual sinister, vexing, and twisted spirit. In full hindsight, this more comedic and less calamitous manner ended with me completely and whole-heartedly digging it. And when I say, The Favourite is more cheer and juvenile than his previous work, I’m not inferring that Lanthimos loses his infamous psychologically poignant gift in this, I’m just inferring that it’s done in a much more subtle way, hidden by cynical buffoonery.
At the time being, I would claim that this isn’t my favorite-sorry-favourite of Lanthimos’s filmography-The Lobster and The Killing of a Sacred Deer still hold that spot dearly to my heart-but I would doubtlessly claim that The Favourite is by a long-shot, Lanthimos’s most gratifying and crowd-pleasing film. I did not expect to had had such a blast with this movie. Not only is it funny as hell, but the comradery and rivalry between Emma Stone’s character and Rachel Weisz’s character-both who by the way, give the most dexterous performances of this entire year-was just too much fun to take in. And Olivia Colman’s performance as the queen…comical perfection.
The atmospherical tone of this movie also is one of the many aspects that won me over. It reputed like an old-fashioned, 1-on-1, battle of the minds movie, just with touches of Lanthimos’s typical synthetic stylizations. It’s the cherry on the top of this shrewd satire.
The Favourite might not be as poetically relevant to today’s society like The Lobster, or as tramuatizingly stirring like The Killing of a Sacred Deer, but it’s a playful piece of mental spectacle that is oddly bone-crushing, yet, pleasing, all at once. Loved nearly every second of it. Bravo, once again Sir Lanthimos. (Verdict: A)
I’m sorry, but I don’t agree with the high rating on this movie. Everything about it was weird. At some point the audio just got on my nerves, weird music. I agree with another reviewer on here that the whole time I was there it made me feel a little creepy. A very dark movie with a little comedy thrown in here and there.
