maybe the best Aussie counter-culture movie!
13 February 2013 | by (Melbourne) – See all my reviews

I'm not going to say too much about this, because I don't want to spoil it for you. However I'm pretty confident this is the best ever Australian fringe culture movie.

It may not look as good as "Dogs in Space", but it sure has a much better narrative! It also has actors who are you know, actually acting! And generally they're very good.

It may not be as grimy as "Pure S**t", but it's damn grimy. It's also a lot funnier.

It's also way better than "He died with a felafel in his hand", which is pretty pathetic in comparison.

I don't really have any criticisms but it might be worth pointing out that you can't really get across Sydney as easily as the characters do in this movie. They seem to go from suburb to suburb in mere minutes! (Sydney has appalling transport issues). The other criticism I have is that the narrative gets somewhat abandoned at the very end, and all sense of plausibility gets abandoned especially with regard to one or two characters. Also I don't really like the name - it's terribly bland and it doesn't seem to have any relation to the movie whatsoever.

It's a great shame that this movie is so under-appreciated and apparently has been for so long. I remember seeing a re-release DVD of "pure s**t" not so long ago which claimed that the movie had been "actively repressed". I don't know what happened to "Going Down", but I can only guess it has also been actively repressed, and it deserves to be re-released with some kind of publicity.
