Going Down Town
19 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

This mirco budget independent film of 1981 is truly one of Australia's lost good films. made over a few nights and almost as a real stagger around town with a bunch of friends who did live like the characters, GOING DOWN has the sort of energy and focus on its time that huge international films strive for. Main young actress Vera Plevnik was killed in an accident days before the premiere, a tragic loss for filmdom in Oz. Magnetic young actor Lou Brown also seen in the equally ignored masterpiece THE IRISHMAN is a handsome screen youth who should have had a huge career. GOING DOWN is more important in 2005 for it's time capsule capture of a wild boozy night of scattered dangerous early 80s fun in the days when there was a change in music and lifestyle in the air, when in Sydney good natured silly 20 somethings like these would often be seen partying on a weeknight. Easily embraced by anyone in any country, GOING DOWN deserves to be re discovered and praised. Just like its eccentric director Haydn Keenan.
