Less Involving Than I Had Hoped

3 months ago at Jan 24 19:45
To be perfectly honest, I found "Wake in Fright," the chronicle of a man's financial and spiritual ruin in the outback of Australia, to be dull, uninvolving, and rather obvious. Maybe the reason it didn't engross me as much as I expected it to was that I expected an entirely different movie. Looking forward to an exciting, entertaining, and well-made rural thriller, I was instead subjected to a VE... read more

My Tedious and Asinine 2014 Movie Diary (76 movies items)

" This is probably one of the strangest and most unconventional films I've ever seen. A snobby schoolteacher in the Australian outback goes on vacation to an adjoining town and encounters a variety of boozing lowlifes, and after a few nights of crazed drinking, he becomes just like them. Wake in Fright isn't a horror film in the average sense of the word; it's more of an existential rumination on life in rural Australia. There is some despicable animal cruelty against kangaroos in a cringe-wo"

Less Involving Than I Had Hoped

“To be perfectly honest, I found "Wake in Fright," the chronicle of a man's financial and spiritual ruin in the outback of Australia, to be dull, uninvolving, and rather obvious. Maybe the reason it didn't engross me as much as I expected it to was that I expected an entirely different movie. Looking forward to an exciting, entertaining, and well-made rural thriller, I was instead subjected to a VERY slow-paced and uneventful movie with lots of animal killings that shocked and sickened me.

Now, I often love slow-paced movies, so I wonder if I simply watched it at the wrong time. But to enjoy a slow movie I have to have have characters that hold my interest, that I like and relate to in some way. The characters in "Wake in Fright" were fairly well-defined, but not likable nor part” read more

Tis The Season For My Fave X-Mas Films & Specials (30 movies items)

"A bored & disgruntled small town school teacher decides to spend his Christmas vacation in the big city of Sidney. Midway through the journey however, he finds himself stuck in another small town the locals call "The Yabba". Though it might as well be named "Hades" considering that he soon finds himself slowly descending into his own personal drink-binging, kangaroo-killing, bar-brawling hell. A tale from down under that goes even further down under. In short, Yuletide holly-day, the outback w"
