    ★★★★½

    Yorgos making up for not having any dogs in dogtooth, and any lobsters in the lobster by having both of them in The Favourite. However a sacred deer is yet to be seen.

The thing is, these scenes never happened in the movie, they were just talked about it, and it’s amazing; how visually clear they make it and how engaging this whole movie is.
