A true must-see

"I expect we're the first white people he's seen."

Enthralling at surface level but challenging underneath, Walkabout is a movie that's more than the sum of its parts. It adheres to a few recognisable subgenres (one could contend it's a mix of a road movie and a coming-of-age tale), yet such distractions are not what this picture is truly about. Director Nicolas Roeg has crafted a d... read more

A good movie

Now, that’s what I call a weird movie. Indeed, I wasn’t ready at all to watch something like this and I was expecting actually something else. I thought it would be a movie about a walkabout done by an Aborigene but I was really mistaken. This movie is definitely something else entirely and I would have a rather hard time to explain what it was actually really about. First, you have about 5 mi... read more

"16.4.18 7.4 A nice girl fantasy I guess... girl and brother gets lost in the outback and are eventually saved by an aborigine boy on his walkabout, from there they set out to find their way back to "civilization". Good cinematography but in the forced type of way. Australia definitely has some "out of this world things" to show. "

" A simple put gripping story that grabs attention from the moment the kids get out in the desert with a crazed, suicidal father. Gorgeous cinematography and Roeg's specific editing style and non-linear way of telling the story is perfect here. "

Nick's Top 100 Films (100 movies items)

""Walkabout is cinema as poetry. Images rhyme with one another in a truly hypnotic fashion. Scenes are as vivid and intense as they are unreal and lyrical. There’s a phantasmagorical array of images, but also a rigorous, genius sense of structure." - Edgar Wright"

50 Great Movies That Were Not Nominated For Any Os (50 movies items)

"As we said much earlier, Nicolas Roeg has never been Oscar nominated, and though that’s sometimes understandable (“Performance,” for instance, isn’t really an AMPAS movie), in other cases it’s more baffling. His early film “Walkabout,” about two children lost in the Australian outback, is perhaps the strangest one. You can perhaps excuse its Best Picture absence, but you’d have thought Cinematography, Editing, or Best Actress would have been in play. Sadly, it seems that Roeg was"
