Reconciliated with Lanthimos. Weird and beauty women fight with no limits. Emma wins? I prfer Rachel rescilience with her scar and her wit and ellegance. The queen is not just comic and satirized, is moving.

This movie turned out to be a great start of this new year for our film club. Indeed, usually, to be honest, I'm not a huge fan of costume-dramas but since this movie had received some great reviews, I thought it would be a rather safe choice. Well, it didn't disappoint me, that's for sure, and I would go as far as saying that it is one of the best movies I have seen in this genre. First of all, Y... read more

Yorgos Lanthimos is one hell of an idiosyncratic auteur. Not just in his use of fishbowl lenses, or the darkly humorous conceits, or the generally corrosive aura that permeates every scene, but in his overall choices of unconventional, occasionally incoherent material. The Favourite keeps up his streak of oddball cinema by turning his weird eye towards the usually staid costume drama.   The Fav... read more

"Eva Contro Eva incontra Barry Lindon in una perfida partita a scacchi tra donne scritta da una donna: la giovane Abigail scalza la solo all'apparenza più esperta Sarah dalle grazie della debole regina Anna utilizando ogni astuzia e intrigo mentre sullo sfondo si muovono uomini ectoplasmatici. Lanthimos dirige con stile e maniera (nonché un eccesso di lenti anamorfiche, grandangolo e inquadrature dal basso, ma pure con il colpo di genio della sobrapposizione dei profili delle protagoniste) un f"

"I appreciate the genre bend and I was impressed by the acting. The story was barely there. The ending was sudden and strange... I think the director, Lanthimos, has a unique eye and messed-up sense of humor, which I'm all for; but this was not his most successful. Knowing this it's strange this was the one that got the Academy's attention."
