An Epic Philosophical Play
2 October 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

When I watched this movie, which was one of those movies that people always bring up when mentioning Noah Taylor, they bring it up, because he starred in it, but ask them about the movie themselves and they give you a blank stare. It was knowing that, which made my stay up 3am, watching this strange, incredibly indulgent, philosophical romp of life which belonged to Ken Elkin (Noah Taylor). Ken is an artist, and he has very little room to breathe in a society which deems that life and religion are not separate they are they same, you live your life to what you believe in. But Ken doesn't know what to believe in, he mixes himself in alcohol, in a derivative of the drug Speed, and his life is a circular motion of rebellion, self doubt and passion. If you want to sit through a beautifully acted play, because this movie has got dialouge which is acted like a play rather than a movie, to see his confusion of trying to love someone but not believing what they believe in....it's just fascinating. Excellent dialouge, elaborate acting and simply stunning sets (the 1950's and 60's in Australia simply come alive, the innocence of that era is amazingly captured) then go on, have a drink and watch Noah Taylor's honest portrayal of a boy who took everything for the moment. It just captured youth with all it's selfishness, I highly recommend it.
