The Nightingale And The Language Of ViolenceDaniel Lammin
It’s not possible to be passive about Jennifer Kent’s THE NIGHTINGALE. In fact, the film itself makes it impossible. It knows you’re there, knows you’re watching. It looks you square in the eye and dares you to flinch as it depicts the deepest pain, deepest loss and deepest anger. Maybe this is why so many have found it difficult to get through.
A Living Hell: Australian Landscapes On ScreenTara Judah
Australian cinema has a history of celebrating reckless men. Mythic, real or fictional, from Ned Kelly and Mad Max to Adam Cullen, there’s a fascination with outlaws. Be it endless bush and marshland or the barren plains of The Outback, Australia’s non-urban, often unforgiving landscapes provide perfect reflection of the characters they condemn. Outlaws or outliers, these characters are narcissists, trying to win a fight for survival against the elements, and thus, themselves.
The Inner SanctumLesley Chow
Watching Samuel Van Grinsven’s SEQUIN IN A BLUE ROOM is like reading THE STORY OF O for the first time: an induction into a sensual world, exploring all of its pleasures, hierarchies and structures. While Van Grinsven’s film is set in contemporary Sydney, where men hook up via a Grindr-like app, its presentation of an erotic scene is nothing less than awed.
