Thrilling departure for Oz film
13 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

Like minds is a film that I have seen at Melbourne International Film Festival. It is a refreshing departure from the current bulk of Oz films. It swept me away into it's unique world for it's entire length and it may actually do some decent box office! It kept me guessing and thinking right to the end, in fact my friends and I kept talking about it at Brekki the next morning. It felt to us like it seemed to harp back to some of the wonderful thinking Oz films of the 70's.

It was a refreshing surprise to see a new Australian film maker unashamed to put production value to effective use to complement the drama in every way. It lets craftsmanship take flight to maximize the impact of the drama.

Half way through when the action pace ramps up, I found I really had to focus on who was manipulating whom. Both in the forward and back story. I was even more engrossed.

It was wonderful to see Toni Collette and Richard Roxburgh playing supporting leads. No doubt that was used for a lot of leverage in getting the film made. Toni lets those wonderful ranges of emotion wash across her face in a subtle and strong performance.

Unusual programming for a film festival, not your typical film festival film I don't think.
