A scrumptious confection laced with poison."
March 10, 2019
On occasion, a film like "The Favourite" comes along to upend convention and tell a compelling historical narrative with visceral, vicious energy.

March 10, 2019
Delicious and vicious, the early 18th century court of Queen Anne has never looked loopier and more fascinatingly relevant than in The Favourite.

March 9, 2019
Yorgos Lanthimos' dryly funny historical feature is all about power, and that means literally wearing the pants in a strange time.
March 6, 2019
"Lanthimos has directed his first major work. Or his first masterpiece?".
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
March 4, 2019
The Favourite, which features scatological humor, gout and a pet duck among its political and romantic court intrigues.
March 4, 2019
A fabricated romantic romp for folks more concerned about a historical drama's entertainment value than its commitment to the facts.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

Colman, Stone, and Weisz make the story alternately grotesque, dramatic, light without them changing their register. [Full Review in Spanish]

Ever wondered what Yorgos Lanthimos' version of Keeping Up with the Kardashians would look like?

February 27, 2019
An incredible infusion of modernity and Restoration-era Great Britain-a boisterous, farcical, and unapologetically inexplicable update on the royal British period piece.
February 27, 2019
The movie singlehandedly upends decades of unimaginative habits by British filmmakers who have generally treated history as well-behaved pageants with period-perfect costumes and lavish settings.
February 27, 2019
Colman's performance as Queen Anne is worthy of Charles Laughton in its lack of vanity and its ever-building pathos.
February 22, 2019
In the end, The Favourite is a haunting reminder of the limits of control.
February 20, 2019
The Favourite [is Yorgos Lanthimos'] most conventional but equally venomous film. [Full review in Spanish]

Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz all deliver career-best performances in this quirky look back at the politics of yesteryear...

Wonderfully arranged and wickedly funny film.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
February 15, 2019
What I love about Stone's twisted performance in The Favourite is that her role so aggressively asks the question, "what if I were the protagonist of this story?"
February 15, 2019
An effective drama that portrays the English Court in a rather harsh, even incisive way. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
