best introduction to New Zealand film
6 January 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I saw _Cinema of Unease_ on STAR-TV out of Hong Kong a few years back, during the centennial celebration of film. To date, I find it the best overview of a nation's film that I have seen. And, of course, NZ film is not to be missed. Not only does Sam Neill (whom I admit is one of my favorite actors - from _Reilly: Ace of Spies_) act well, but he writes and directs a workable, tongue-in-cheek story of himself, of his country, and of the film he loves.
