It’s never easy to definitively decide whether a filmmaker or a screenwriter deserves more credit for a great movie.  A big part of why I’m choosing Carol for this award is that, more than some of the other nominees, felt like it would have been the same solid movie that it is even if it hadn’t been made by someone as skilled as Todd Haynes.  Additionally, from what I’ve read it would seem that this is the movie out of these five that needed to be most carefully adjusted in order to adapt it into a visual medium.
