The Dressmaker - An insane, barmy and ecstatic film
THE DRESSMAKER
An insane, barmy and ecstatic film
Jocelyn Moorhouse has delivered an insane, barmy and ecstatic film, bubbling with more life and tenacity than an Australian film has in years.
Romeo + Juliet - 20 years on
ROMEO + JULIET
20 years on
What Luhrmann did was something that combined both in a way that made it both accessible and still faithful.
Human Capital - Intangible assets and dramatic payoffs
HUMAN CAPITAL
Intangible assets and dramatic payoffs
An engrossing mystery, this film deserves credit for trying to deal with issues that affect adults, with the talented cast and carefully modulated performances as considerable bonuses.
Jill Bilcock: Dancing the Invisible - A fascinating portrait of an Australian cinema icon
JILL BILCOCK: DANCING THE INVISIBLE
A fascinating portrait of an Australian cinema icon
You’ll walk away with an insatiable desire to go back and watch all her great work again, with your new knowledge of her craft and philosophy, at how she conjures magic out of the marriage of images.
Saint Maud - Religious fervour and psychological horror
SAINT MAUD
Religious fervour and psychological horror
An insight into a lonely and very modern existence that is sadly recognisable. Rose Glass delivers on so many levels as a writer/director that it's hard to believe that this is her debut feature.
Last and First Men - An aeon-spanning arthouse sci-fi tale
LAST AND FIRST MEN
An aeon-spanning arthouse sci-fi tale
Not for everyone. But if you're in the right mood, it's a science fiction film that provides the framework for your imagination to run wild.
Lovemobil - Sex work and economic necessity in the German countryside
LOVEMOBIL
Sex work and economic necessity in the German countryside
Mixing the beautiful and lurid, this documentary provides audiences with plenty of food for thought. It's filled with moments that thwart stereotypes, revealing the naked heart of its subjects.
Feels Good Man - From stoner frog to bonafide hate symbol
FEELS GOOD MAN
From stoner frog to bonafide hate symbol
Arthur Jones tells an absorbing story about how something as simple as a cartoon frog can be easily co-opted and corrupted to become a symbol of pure malevolence.
