I finally saw THE FAVOURITE. And my first question was, why now - why would Lanthimos decide to tell a story about three women basically leading England in early 1700? Anyway, all of his films are constructs, so, what this one is all about?
Can't help my self but to answer it this way: If women come to lead the world, this is how it's going to look like: neurotic, depressive, too emotional in a very nasty way... vengeful... fucking themselves... hurting everyone around, and eventually hurting the nation. This is what Hollywood producers are shouting: MEN WAKE UP, stop being rabbits! And Lanthimos is helping them spread the word. Interesting stuff, ha? And just for the record: Lanthimos was never my favorite. #yorgoslanthimos - 1 hour ago
