2016 Best Art Direction Winner

The Handmaiden


Movies about rich people set in time periods like this are a pretty usual shoo-in for art direction awards like this… not going to fight it.  The art direction in The Handmaiden has all the richness of your usual “manor movie” but the cross-cultural elements add a lot to it and the design work has a lot of that Park Chan-Wook perversity that gives it a certain something that you don’t get elsewhere.
