Baz At Work - Australia review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
03/05/2009

Baz Luhrmann with Australia has thrown everything but the kitchen sink into this epic mess. Set against the beautiful outback, this is one of the most visually stunning films of recent times. Practically a constant trailer for visiting the country, it’s a shame that some of the special effects and projection techniques let the mystique slip. Crammed into its epic running time is a Western: a love story: the dawning of World War II and how the aboriginal population was treated. Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman seem to have a ball with the manic script, somehow you do want to see how things turn out. Just like Tarsem Singh’s The Fall, the backdrops and cinematography prove to be more entertaining than the script itself, which loses direction after the first hour.
