Feuding households, warring kingdoms and vengeful gangsters – 2019’s slate of autumn films explores worlds in disorder. A frenetic trip from the Middle Ages to modern-day Massachusetts, it’s also an auteur-heavy line-up, as new films from Messrs Martin Scorsese, David Michôd, Rian Johnson, Taika Waititi and Noah Baumbach toss their hats into the Oscar ring. Here, MR PORTER unpicks the genre-defying highlights of the coming months, making your nightly Netflix trawl that much easier.
