Meeting David Stratton

Given that a film has been made him, his career, and his relationship to Australian film – I’d say reservedly comfortable. He won’t stress the point, but there’s no denying the extent to which David has dominated film culture in this country since the 1960s. Ryan Suckling interviews David Stratton.

Review: Bad Girl

It is these universally relevant themes of family belonging, trust, and betrayal, that see Bad Girl transcend the boundary of an Australian independent film, to one capable of an international reception. Cindy Shi reviews.

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’s winning combination of infectious energy, gorgeous aesthetic and laugh out loud humour more than makeup for the uneven storytelling. Dominic Kwaczynski reviews.

Words with Tom Vincent

An image hardly unfitting for a bunch of lofty, rancid youths; but still in comic contrast to the shirted, contemplative man sipping his coffee before me. Ryan Suckling interviews Tom Vincent.

Review: Berlin Syndrome

The film actively resists the sensationalism of a horror or other confinement thrillers, and in some ways – because of this and the questions Clare’s relationship with her captor raises – it is more terrifying. Julian Coleman reviews.

Review: Power Rangers

At first the shift from drama to camp is quite jarring, yet by the time the teens are all suited up and the Power Rangers theme kicks in, it’s hard not to give in to its shamelessness. Dominic Kwaczynski reviews.
