Movie Reviews

Cinemaphile.org - 10/10 by David KeyesLanthimos has made a film that plays like a diabolical union between Ken Russell and Robert Bresson, full of savage rhythms and emotional distance.
Entertainment Weekly - 10/10 by Chris NashawatyThis couldn’t be further from the corsets and curtsies of your typical Hollywood prestige period piece. It’s more like "All About Eve" directed by a Satyricon-era Fellini all hopped up with enough sex, deviance, hypocrisy, decadence, and spicy profanity to make your average Masterpiece Theatre patron reach into their PBS tote bag for some smelling salts.
The Hollywood Reporter - 10/10 by David Rooney[Yorgos Lanthimos'] fabulously entertaining tragicomedy, The Favourite, is a juicy power tangle connecting three women in the royal court of early 18th-century England, played by a divine trio who bounce off one another with obvious relish.
Sight and Sound - 10/10 by Giovanni Marchini CamiaNo amount of ostentation proves sufficient to spruce up the insipid narrative, which strains to fulfil its two-hour running time as if it were a requirement of seriousness.
National Newspaper Publishers Association - 10/10 by Dwight BrownIf you're tired of those boring royal British films and want to see the genre turned upside down, this dark, nasty bit of debauchery and revenge sex will leave you gasping for air.
Film Threat - 10/10 by Theo SchearThis is a work of art that embraces and embellishes all the joys of cinema while offering a more enjoyable and progressive revisionist history.
Film Inquiry - 10/10 by Josh MartinThe Favourite succeeds in engulfing us in a world of pettiness and extravagance, where cake and power matter more than political strife or human cost.
HeyUGuys - 10/10 by Linda MarricSharp, filthy and fantastically anarchic, The Favourite is a hilarious and original vision that is an utter delight. The very definition of a must-see.
The List - 10/10 by Nikki BaughanUnderneath the pomp and powdered wigs it makes scathing commentary about the devastating nature of power struggles that remains blisteringly relevant in this Brexit/Trump age.
The Jacobin - 10/10 by Eileen JonesThe Favourite is a special holiday gift just for you: a weird and wonderful sod-off response to all the many lavish, solemn, toff-worshipping British "heritage films" and TV series centered on the domestic lives of royals.
