- The Favourite (Sandy Powell) – Period dramas will always have the edge in the costumer category, so it is important to look beyond historical accuracy for something unique and the vibrant costumes that Powell has created appear both of their time and out of time.
The BAFTA Winner
- The Favourite
|The acting is atrocious, the story so cleansed it isn't really a biopic at all and the cinematography gives everything a TV movie colourised glow that makes everything look staged. But for all that I still found myself enjoying the cheesiness of it all.
|Mary Poppins Returns
|Does a remarkable job of feeling like an extension of the original. Blunt is tremendous when singing, but loses her way with the spoken parts.
|Mary Queen of Scots
|Two stunning performances from Ronan and Robbie complement a beautifully crafted (if a little one sided) retelling of how England and Scotland finally became united.
|The Ballad of Buster Scruggs
|As with most anthology films, some of the tales were hit and miss, but some were excellent (such as Buster and also the wagon train story). It was so wonderfully shot I am surprised it got no awards nominations for cinematography.
|A quirky period tale of two cousins fighting for the attentions of the Queen. Coleman and Stone are superb and the direction inventive, but the story sags quite heavily before a polarising end.
