It was an amazing year for Australian Cinema, with each film I saw knocking it out of the park. There were intimate documentaries, films that held up a mirror to society, and those that brought action to a new level.
It was also a great year for overseas films made in Australia like Aquaman, but in this list, we will be looking more at the locally made Australian productions/co-productions.
So without further ado, these are the best of Australian Cinema in 2018. Be warned that there will be some big spoilers ahead for the films in question.
There are many techniques you can use to help build
your world, or ground your setting, or give dimensions to your characters. You
can use music, you can create elaborate sets, but one of the best ways is the costumes
People make instant judgments about a character within moments on the screen
and the outfits are a really important part of that first impression. More than
this, you can also use costumes as a way for storytelling, what do they say
about this world, what do they say about how a character is progressing.
Costumes can build worlds, tell us details we can only see, but also they can
just make us say ‘hot damn’ look at that beading on that dress, that must have
taken hours to do. So without further ado, these are the costumes
that made us say ‘hot damn’ in 2018. Be warned that there may be some slight
spoilers ahead for the films in question.
TL;DR – This is a film that is filled with joy from start to finish, a truly beautiful film
Score – 4.5 out of 5 stars
Post-Credit Scene – There is no post-credit scene
There are times when you need to delve into the complex machinations of a
political intrigue or see two superheroes
brawl in the ruins of a fallen civilization
or explosions in space as ships rocket past. However, there are times when you
need to take a step back and just immerse yourself in the world of other people
living extraordinary lives filled with glamour
