I saw Night today....
15 January 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is an awesomely beautifully photographed and edited documentary filmed in Australian cities like Sydney and Melbourne with some rural and desert diversions. The imagery explores night time and its enjoyment and reaction to Australians of all ages. Created by Lawrence Johnston who directed the exquisite personal documentary ETERNITY over 10 years ago, NIGHT is a visual triumph, a sort of Australian BARAKA with an emotional symphony music score that matches the scrapbook of sequences very well. The only unnecessary additions to this wonderful film are 30-somethings as talking heads telling us about their personal experiences of night (dreams included) when their unseen narration over the incredible scenes would have done just fine, and late in the film when a 9/11 shot of the twin towers is included which weirdly is the only day shot in the film. I really found this to be an emotionally enthralling documentary and came from the screening quite overwhelmed. Johnston and his team including the composer and photographer and especially editor are to be applauded. This film along with the Vivaldi documentary '4' released late last year has seen talented Australian film makers offer truly exceptional humane documentaries deserving of many awards and huge ticket-sales. If NIGHT or 4 come anywhere near you, I advise you to run to get a ticket. ... and track down ETERNITY.
