CGiii Comment

From Skippy to Walkabout, from Priscilla to Mad Max...and [almost] everything before, after and in between...this is Australia, seen through a familiar - but, very skewed - lens.

Fasten your seatbelts for juxtaposition heaven...a mad & hysterical rollercoaster ride, with some scathing comment to boot!

Hysterical in places, bloody in others...but, biting throughout. It certainly highlights the importance [and abuse] of context. A staggering amount of work went into the making of this...Guy Maddin attempted something similar with The Green Fog - this is how it should be done!

There really are moments of [genuine] genius scattered throughout...our highlights: Skippy was a feminist! Mel Gibson gets flattened! And...Dorothy's new friend: The Babadook! And...that last scene, so very chilling.

Really rather brilliant.

TERROR NULLIUS (trailer), 2018 from Soda_Jerk on Vimeo.

The(ir) Blurb...

TERROR NULLIUS is a political revenge fable which offers an un-writing of Australian national mythology. The sample-based film works entirely within, and against, the official archive in order to achieve a queering and othering of Australian cinema. Part political satire, eco-horror and road movie, TERROR NULLIUS is a world in which minorities and animals conspire, and not-so-nice white guys finish last. Where girl gangs rule the highways, a house is haunted by the spectre of queer Australia and a bicentennial celebration is ravaged by flesh-eating sheep. It's a beautiful bloody mix of the historical and the speculative, the art house and grindhouse.

Due to the massive amounts of spam we receive, the comments section is curated...so, no spam, no swearing, nothing unrelated to the film...they just won't be published! Time is precious, let's not waste it!
