A snapshot of Bankstown, NSW, Australia, 1970s style.
22 June 2001 | by (Blue Mountains, Australia) – See all my reviews

'The FJ Holden' is a snapshot of Bankstown, NSW, Australia, 1970s. Or perhaps Sydney's West, the much-maligned lower end of the real estate market in those days, the place where 'girls don't go alone, not if they have any self-respect'. I've lived there all of my life and know this film is more of a documentary than a movie. It has no plot and that's okay. It's a slice of life and was never supposed to have a beginning or an end. Compare it to 'The Bicycle Thieves' if you will. Every shot, every line, every word is evocative of the period and location. Malign it if you will, but to those of us who lived through the 70s, its a mirror of those times and a masterpiece.
