CINEMATOGRAPHY

  • BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY Newton Thomas Sigel
  • COLD WAR Łukasz Żal
  • THE FAVOURITE Robbie Ryan
  • FIRST MAN Linus Sandgren
  • ROMA Alfonso Cuarón

Our Winner:

  • First Man (Linus Sandgren) – Unlike the gaudy and vulgar colours forced down your throat in Bohemian Rhapsody, the simple yet beautiful use of nostalgic colour glows in First Man helps to build the sense of wonder and recreate a truly world changing piece of history.

Bohemian Rhapsody 2018 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. Gordon 3
Cold War 2018 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. Gordon 3
First Man 2018 A wonderful biopic that is clearly about the man and not the mission. Don't expect lots of glory shots of rockets or planets, just a man and his single minded ambition. Gordon 4.5
Roma 2018 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. Gordon 3.5
The Favourite 2018 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. Gordon 4
