Bold and frivolous take on the classic costume drama. It's a bit surprising, considering Lanthimos' earlier films, but he managed to turn this into a rather fun and extravagant affair that never ran out of steam. The visual trickery gets a little repetitive maybe, but that's hardly a negative for a genre that is otherwise quite stuffy and stagnant.
