Fantastic depiction of the ups and downs of an actor/criminal.
11 March 2010 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I walked past this film when it was both at the cinemas and as a DVD but just caught it on ABC. How I regret not watching it earlier. The fascinating story of Jack Charles is propelled by narration by Charles himself which is weaved into footage of his life on the street and from his acting in films from his past. Jack Charles is an actor with a long history on the screen and stage who is also a career criminal and drug abuser. This film charts several years in his life as he discusses his past. A terrific and fascinating documentary that stands testament to its subject and its makers and well recommended to anybody who has an interest in acting, the Australian indigenous experience or quality documentary film making.
