David Strat­ton’s Sto­ries Of Aus­tralian Cin­ema

Western Times - - LIFE | TV GUIDE -

Tues­day, abc, 8.30pm

This love let­ter to Aus­tralian cin­ema – and a fas­ci­nat­ingly hon­est ex­pose of one of Aus­tralia’s great­est film crit­ics – con­cludes with a look at fam­i­lies. David Strat­ton neatly ties up his en­gag­ing three-part spe­cial un­earthing how Aussie cin­ema has de­picted and ex­plored the idea of fam­ily. From The Cas­tle’s (1997) nu­clear fam­ily, to the fam­ily of faith in The Devil’s Play­ground

(1976), Rom­per Stom­per’s

(1992) neo-Nazis, the im­mi­grants in Head On (1998) and crime fam­i­lies in Ned Kelly

(2003) and An­i­mal King­dom

(2010), it’s a fan­tas­tic end­ing to a hu­mor­ous and af­fec­tion­ate spe­cial.
