My third Peter Weir film and his best so far. I've rated all three films, The Truman Show, Dead Poets Society and Picnic at Hanging Rock more than 9.0 stars and this one is the highest rated, so far.

There's cinema, then there's beautiful cinema and then there's Picnic at Hanging Rock, a movie so tantalizing, so ethereal, so sublime, that you may scream out IMPOSSIBLE because no-othe... read more

I Recommend...(The Short List) (80 movies items)

" Mystery/Drama It's tough to say why, but I found this movie very unsettling. It freaked me out for a few hours after I watched it. It's also very beautiful and hypnotic. Set in 1900 in Australia, a bunch of school girls and a teacher from a private school go missing during a picnic. The rest of the movie deals with the fallout of their disappearance. Almost every frame of the picnic is amazing to watch. You could take any frame and it would make a great picture. The direction and composition"

“My third Peter Weir film and his best so far. I've rated all three films, The Truman Show, Dead Poets Society and Picnic at Hanging Rock more than 9.0 stars and this one is the highest rated, so far.

There's cinema, then there's beautiful cinema and then there's Picnic at Hanging Rock, a movie so tantalizing, so ethereal, so sublime, that you may scream out IMPOSSIBLE because no-other film has quite reached this level. There are others, yes, and I've seen many, but this one is a true eye-candy. The innocence and sweetness is in the beautiful ladies and the excellent cinematography but they start and stop there. You see, Picnic is not a sweet movie, far from it, it's a haunting, surreal movie with a violent atmosphere to it. Students of Appleyard College go on a picnic trip to Ha” read more

"Peter Weir Why isn't Peter Weir a household name yet? This film alone should make one. It's about time if you ask me "She hadn't been... molested?" My third Peter Weir film and his best so far.

Dark, Troubling Films That Will Never Leave You (28 movies items)

"Intensity Rating - 6/10 Memorable/Graphic Imagery - 8/10 Propensity to Disturb - 6/10 Most Horrifying/Shocking Scene: Since its not really terrifying as opposed to haunting, there is no outright horror to be had except for the dream-like, poetic chill and unsettling mood throughout each scene, particularly every moment upon the formation and the swan in Micheal's bedroom. If we had to go on shock, it would be the fact nothing is concluded: the mystery remains intact without any kind of possible"

Ugliness and demeasure in cinema (119 movies items)

" Fantastic is not always direct. It can be really subtle. In Picnic at Hanging Rock, girls from a convent go take picnic on a mountain. Some of them strangely disappear. We will never know what happened to them. We will only feel it, deep in our minds."

"12.12. Loistava kertomus teini-ikäisten tyttöjen seksuaalisesta heräämisestä ja sitä kautta tapahtuvasta aikuistumisesta äärimmäisen vanhoillisessa yhteiskunnassa, jossa nämä asiat yritetään pitää tabuina muuttuvista ajoista huolimatta. Tunnelma on koko ajan piinaavalla tavalla mystinen, ja erinomainen soundtrack onnistuu synnyttämään tavallisiltakin vaikuttaviin kohtauksiin joko jännittävän tai tietyllä tavalla eroottisen alavireen. Parhaassa tapauksessa molemmat. Visua"
