Indonesia is full of so many contradictions in so many different ways but this place takes the cake.
Not sure if anything on this exact topic has been posted before here but a hidden city found under mans house..Excellent watch.
Also sorry the talking goldfish which made me cringe so beware a little childish and irritating way of editing but good all the same.
Part 2 with Titus
Clive Palmer....well fuk me....
'the royal hotel' is pretty cool, julia garner (inventing anna, ozarks), like wake in fright, mixed with femme fantasy, good discussions to be had re director, the doco that was made about the reality, reality, and stylised empowerment... 'big' film endings, 'happy' film endings.. 'empowering' film endings.. but all slow-paced in the sa style. good to watch after Ivan Sen's 'limbo'.
Jed Palmer knocks the sound design out of the park, the characterisation of the town/hotel/decay/futility through sound is absolutely brilliant.. the 5.1 or the 7.3.1 or whatever it is up to, sucks: 2 ears = stereo; wish it was still the standard, and people like Jed didn't have to negotiate such distracting bullshit.
Thanks for the heads up! Wake in Fright was an unexpected surprise I stumbled upon a while back. Late night tv I think.
'royal hotel' is about, just had a look, it's a '1 session at 12:20 at chermside on a saturday' kinda movie. slow, dusty, aussie cool and worthy of engagement : )
Have you experienced the traffic in Chermside the days. No need to wake in fright. It’s a daily living nightmare
I see it’s getting a run at Maroochydore from tomorrow. Will check it out.
i recommend you get mildly giggly on goon.. will help with the traffic and get you onboard with the premise.. the M'roochy 10am and 12 midday times pretty much dictate this as a course of action.
I’ll take your advice and report back to you. Ooh then I can shiv some pleb at the Plaza bus stop and steal his Nikeees before heading home.
well, that could possibly ruff-up the end of the film experience, should you find the gentler femme-end unsatisfying, but sounds a bit unnecessary.
...get some sorta dukkah/avo/egg thing into you, get some giggly goon on, and set-in to absorb an outback flick.. sounds perfectly civilised to me : )
Oh come on on. It’s just what we do at the Plaza bus stop. It’s a SC thing.. I usually see a movie when I need some new kicks.
so o.g. - eshays wouldn't be seen dead in 2nd hand kicks.
