11 October 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I've always been of the opinion that Australian-made movies/TV programs were less than when compared with movies made in UK or USA. Even low budget American sit-coms seem to have higher production values than the big-budget Australian extravaganzas. Compare 'Burn Notice'(USA) with the latest (Australian) produced version of "The Great Gatsby"! I could never put my finger on the reason. The only exception to the foregoing statement would be "Phar Lap"(1983) directed by Simon Wincer.

Back to "Squizzy Taylor": a nasty little film about a nasty little man. According to Australian actor/critic/bore Graeme Blundell: David Atkins, since his starring role in this turkey, went on to become a film producer! Atkins has never been a household name and now we all know why. Even the much used Jacki Weaver can't save this tripe. Switch channels, mental note to self: never again. There we go: over ten lines already and I've hardly gotten started! Be warned.
