Best Armstrong Documentary To Date
2 June 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Having been a great fan of Gillian Armstrong's films in the past I was very excited to have the opportunity to preview her latest documentary at Sundance, and I was not disappointed. Gillian gave the story of Florence Broadhurst the color and excitement it deserved. With beautiful cinematography and design, this documentary is a stand out. As I am not a big fan of talking head doco's, this film gave the documentary genre a fresh new look. With colorful, stylised drama re-enactments shot on film mixed with Monty-python style animation, fantastic archival footage and interviews surrounded in worlds of wallpaper, it becomes a roller coaster ride of style. Loved it.
