hello DVD.....?
9 April 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This hilarious political satire is on of the best films of the 80s to emerge from the International ideology of this period: meaning simply that many great films were made in Australia at that time that suited world cinema release. GOODBYE PARADISE is a big production about an attempted coup in Queensland, directed by Carl Schultz (the equally superb Careful He Might Hear You) and written by Bob Ellis with a poison pen, GP starred battered old Ray Barrett at possibly is most laconic and crumpled. This film deserves a major release on DVD for new cynical audiences can embrace its wit and hilarious ridicule of all things to be found in 'the sunshine state' and it's 80s corruption. Seen Muriel's Wedding and the awful inhabitants and businessmen living in Porpoise Spit? Well you have a wicked appetizer for a sumptuous feast of genuinely uproarious Aussie political satire at it's stinging best. This is a great film unjustly neglected. The DVD release will fix that.
