Where Ever Yorgos I Goes

There aren't many directors working today whose new projects I look forward to more enthusiastically than I do The Lobster's Yorgos Lanthimos, but at the rate he's signing up for stuff right now he's spreading my only human depths of enthusiasm maybe a bit thin. I can't keep up! Today comes word that he will be making a series for Amazon on the trials and tribulations of the noted piece of shit Oliver North, and it will star Colin Farrell. 

This is very exciting news, and Colin is excellent casting, and the two have already proved they work well together. In fact they will probably have proven that again elsewhere before we get this Oliver North thing because their second feature film together The Killing of a Sacred Deer with Nicole Kidman, which has already filmed, will have come out by then.

And where does Yorgos' other TV series with Kirsten Dunst fit in? And then there's The Favourite -- which I think might be filming now? -- which is his movie starring Olive Colman as Queen Anne, co-starring Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, and Nicholas Hoult as folks clamoring for Colman's attention (aka what the rest of the intelligent world is also currently doing).

Point being - remember quality matters over quantity, my beloved Mr. Lanthimos. Preferably both, though? Just keep doing what you're doing and I'll tell you when it's too much, I guess. Same goes for you, Colin. Just in a different, dirtier way...
