Passionate Denunciation of Racism in Australia, but Rather Monotonous
30 November 2013 | by (London) – See all my reviews

The title UTOPIA is ironic, referring to a district of Australia set aside for the native Aboriginies that is anything but Utopian. John Pilger's documentary takes a long hard look at the ways in which the Aboriginies have been systematically abused by the white majority, who have not only taken their land, but subjected them to a series of indignities, whether physical, mental, or legislative. In many parts of the country they live in abject poverty, in communities redolent of nineteenth century England, with little prospect of improvement. Small children are often taken away from their families and made to assimilate into mainstream white culture. A succession of government policies have subjected them to heavy-handed police tactics, as well as being invaded by the Australian army. As with many of his films, Pilger's documentary is hard-hitting and opinionated, with the presenter-director asking the kind of questions of important politicians (e.g. former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd) that few of his contemporaries dare ask. In structural terms, however, the film becomes rather monotonous in terms of content - a bit of judicious pruning wouldn't have come amiss. But watchable nonetheless.
