James Winn, Biographer Of Queen Anne And Dryden, And A Master Of The Flute, Has Died At 71

Winn didn’t like the way that the academic world tended to get itself twisted into silos, he said, which is why he wrote about cultural life during Queen Anne’s reign, the poetry of war, Bach and the Beatles. “Professor Winn himself was certainly not a silo-dweller; when he wasn’t teaching English or writing about the Restoration, he was performing with orchestras or small ensembles, or working on a recording.” – The New York Times

The (Mostly Forgotten) Power of Vernacular Design

This simple woodworking clamp was developed thousands of years ago from a tree branch. Modern manufacturing methods made the tool less effective. How do you fix that? If you want to get serious about your rock 'n' roll, it's not enough to get your inspiration from the Beatles or the Rolling Stones. To really understand the musical form, you need to listen to what the Stones listened to. You, my friend, need to spin some records from blues legend Robert Johnson.The same goes with design. It's si...

Oscars 2019: Melissa McCarthy, a cape and all your ‘Favourite’ rabbits

Melissa McCarthy presented the award for best costume design with Brian Tyree Henry, and if you hadn’t seen “The Favourite” you probably didn’t get the joke. McCarthy wore an old-fashioned ruffed collar and long, long train befitting Queen Anne, the character played by Oscar nominee Olivia Colman in “The Favourite,” and all of it was covered in plush rabbits, a nod to that character’s beloved pets.

The Favourite Review

If you’ve managed to become a fan of Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer), you probably weren’t expecting his next feature to be from the realm of “based on true events,” or set in the throne room of 18th century England. You also might not expect him to be directing something he didn’t write. On the other hand, once you hear that The Favourite is an often bizarre, always discomforting, morality play focusing on sexuality, mental illness, manipulation and cha...

With 20 arrondissements (neighborhoods) and thousands of hotels, hostels, and apartments, finding the best place to stay in Paris can be a bit of a challenge. What’s the best overall neighboorhood?

Yorgos Lanthimos 101: Exploring the Brilliant, Deranged Work of the Director of ‘The Favourite’

Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos is not the most accessible filmmaker for your average audience. To begin, his characters don’t behave as if they are bound to the same cultural norms that we are. Conversations that would be utterly taboo in our society are discussed with abandon, like Steven (Colin Farrell) in The Killing of a Sacred Deer casually telling a colleague that his daughter has started her period. Lanthimos’ worlds run parallel to our own, but they offer a unique and sometimes distur...

How ‘The Favourite’ Director and Crew Defied Period Conventions

Director Yorgos Lanthimos continues to defy conventions with “The Favourite,” a funny and savage look at the court of England’s Queen Anne in the early 1700s. “Period films are always challenging,” he tells Variety, “and with a limited budget, it takes a lot of work. So it was hard but fun.” Lanthimos and his crew […]

‘The Favourite’ review: an irresistibly nasty tale of lust, power and pet bunnies

The real fun of Yorgos Lanthimos’ "The Favourite," set in the early-18th-century court of England’s Queen Anne, is in the three central performances (from Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz), each of which threatens to steal the film. Rating: 3.5 stars out of 4.

Queen Anne Costume Drama 'The Favourite' Dazzles with Humor, Tragedy, Weirdness

None A costume drama for people who hate costume dramas, The Favourite is often hilarious, always dark, and infinitely weird. Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos chooses the haughty setting of Queen Anne's 18th century royal estate for his lesbian love triangle. The technical mastery of Barry Lyndon meets the emotional gamesmanship of All About Eve as we luxuriate in all manner of absurdist debauchery. The Favourite provides deliciously wicked fun that boasts some of the best performances and sump...

Exploring the Strange and Absurd True History of ‘The Favourite’ [Part One]

The Favourite is, predictably, a somewhat fictionalized telling of the story of Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) and the rivalry between two of the most important women in her life: Sarah Churchill (Rachel Weisz) and Abigail Masham (Emma Stone). But you might be surprised to learn that the latest work of darkly comedic idiosyncrasy from Yorgos Lanthimos is actually more faithful to history than most period dramas. When it comes to monarchy, truth is often stranger (and more absurd) than fiction, and...

7 Things We Learned About ‘The Favourite’ from Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz and Yorgos Lanthimos [Interview]

“There was nothing that didn’t appeal to me about it,” replied Emma Stone when asked about why she wanted to be a part of The Favourite, Yorgos Lanthimos’ latest directorial outing. The film has been a standout on the fall film festival circuit wherever it has played. I caught it on opening night at the New York Film Festival, and it’s been my favorite film of 2018 ever since. The Favourite provides a delicious showcase for three tremendously talented actresses in a sumptuous period setting wit...
