My Peterio Awards (Part Thirty-Four: Best Art Direction in a Film)

Picture 1

Standouts from this film of endless lavish sets include the Chinese charity ball and detailed town of Darwin and its ports. Having the range of an intimate set such as campgrounds and Faraway Downs to elaborate set pieces such as war-torn streets and Missionary Island while not missing a beat is definitely a fest for the eyes. Ever a daunting task, a Baz Luhrmann film requires the mind of Catherine Martin to carry out the scope of an epic as big as Australia.

Other Notable Nominees: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Fall, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull & Wall-E
