The best movie ever to come out of Australia
26 January 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

In 1971 I was 13... probably didn't see the movie for about another 5 or so years...but when I saw it....It made so much sense. & it was an excellent cinema experience.... OK...the story... boy chucks job.. boy meets other guys' sheila..boy hangs about.... until sheila and he goes hammer and tongs...a bit of a triangle ensues.... The sheila has this emotional compass theory which is rather cute...

To my mind....Stork is the best movie ever made in Australia... And that Bruce Spence never won an Oscar for his stand up performance?.... .... ... Who knows why?...There must've been a conspiracy.... The film to my thinking was an absolute standout. Watch it and enjoy. Jackie Weaver :) is miles better than Sigourney in her undies... Any day.
