Reviewing the 63rd Sydney Film Festival: Goldstone

Here I am back again one year later reviewing another suite of films at the Sydney Film Festival.

Ivan Sen’s new film Goldstone opened the Sydney Film Festival last night, and has divided audiences: “masterpiece” https://www.theguardian.com/film/2016/jun/09/goldstone-review-a-masterpiece-of-outback-noir-that-packs-a-political-punch, or “flawed experiment” http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/finalcut/ivan-sen-review-goldstone/7493036 ??

  1. While I would not go as far as calling it a “flawed experiment” it also falls far short of a masterpiece. My review concludes “Whatever faults it may have, Goldstone is a brilliantly photographed and entertaining crime thriller that foregrounds the spectacular Australian outback and pays respect to its ancestral heritage.” Please drop in for a read.
