The Favourite

Yorgos Lanthimos Regno Unito, 2018

El Biffo's rating of the film La favorita

There's so much beauty and perfection in this picture that I'm going to ignore whatever shortcomings it may have. I spent so much time looking at the stuff IN the picture, that I may have to watch it again to actually see the film in a complete way. I am a sucker for incredibly gorgeous production and design, and all the femme perversity and evil just makes it all that more delicious.
