Amazing time machine back to my own childhood!
12 January 2011 | by InstantKiwiSee all my reviews

I saw 'the Six Dollar Fifty Man' at the NZ International film festival last year and was instantly transported back to my own childhood in the 1970's. The six million dollar man was the hot toy in the seventies that I always wanted (but my brother got it from Santa instead - life ruined!). 8 year old Oscar Vandy-Connor is a revelation as the lead actor, he channels the great method actors in his portrayal of Andy, an 8 year old dreamer dealing with bullies in sleepy 1970's New Zealand. An amazing brooding performance that is a tribute to the talented filmmakers & Oscar! The film has a much deserved Oscar nomination - So Oscar could be getting an Oscar!! - Go see it!
