Simply my favorite film
9 March 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Not everyone is likely to appreciate this quirky piece of art to the extent that I do, but in my opinion it is one of the most unique and beautiful celluloid creations to come out of the Southern Hemisphere since the 80's. It's the closest I've come to feeling like I'm watching a live play and yet the surreal panoramic desert scenes open the stage up in a way that could never be achieved in a theater. The characters are absolutely charming in their eccentricity, and despite the fact that they are, (on purpose I expect) slightly caricatured, it seems to fit in totally with the alternately gaudy and melancholy feel of the environment. The score is a haunting blend of inspired minimalist electro pads and creaky violin, that conjures up perfectly the sun-bleached skulls, the tumbling weeds and the pathos of the two characters caught in their own cycle of madness and humanity. Some of the dialogue also happens to be vastly funny in it's own nutty way. A circus of the grotesque, simple and amazing. The simple plot which speaks of broken dreams and desperate hope is childlike and touching. I don't claim to be an experienced film reviewer, just an enthusiast who loves this one.

I like all Alex's films, with the possible exception of The Crow, but I think this early piece is the one that touches my heart the most. Yay for the guts to be original... Please when can I get it on DVD?
