Salvation
14 June 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Paul Cox presents yet another brilliant and thought provoking film for fans of his work. Prompted by a comment he heard from a high profile tele-evangelist who said "God wanted me to have cosmetic surgery", or the like, and Paul was away with Salvation. Paul's clear view of the insidious nature of some of these self appointed authorities of faith, results in an hilarious script allowing a strong cast to weave a tale of mirth. The Australian cast is rich in talent including Wendy Hughes, Kim Gyngell, Bruce Myles, Natasha Novak, Alex Menglet, Chris Haywood, Terry Norris, Charles "Bud" Tingwell, Monica Maughan, Tony Llewellyn-Jones and Barry Humphries. Barry Humphries character and his depiction reduced me to tears. So moving and thoughtful. Watch for the many magic moments where Paul Cox allows you to share his eye for the special times and visuals this earthy world has to offer.
