- The Favourite – Despite strong competition from Cuaron and Spike Lee, we felt that the quirky nature and employment of unusual angles just edged Lanthimos out in front. However had this been about a single shot from each film then Roma would have won by a mile for its breathtaking beach scene.

- Alfonso Cuaron (Roma)
|A Star is Born
|A worthy remake that grew on me as it went. Both lead roles were played very well and the songs were good, but I didn't buy some of the emotional bits and the British manager was just awful.
|Despite its wewighty subject matter Spike Lee has crafted an engaging film that works as both history and entertainment.
|As funny as it is powerful, as thrilling as it is harrowing, Spike Lee's film delivers an incredibly strong message in the most entertaining way possible, with an ending that is both shocking and necessary. A film the whole world should see.
|Black and white Polish film telling a damaged love story through a troupe of peasant folk singers/dancers performing traditional songs through the post war years of Soviet Poland. Not really my kind of film, but I did get quite a bit out of it.
|The deliberately mundane story of a house maid. I was struggling to see what the critics had seen in the film until a scene that singularly blew me away (waves). It was so wonderfully shot and acted that I fully welled up at the beauty and horror of it.
|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.
