Awesome, deep and keeps you planted. (by bhoffman-08804)
I tried to get up and get some food a few times and had to throw this on pause each time.Noting sexual or filth talk, but wont keep the kids interested unless your kids actually have a brain and aren't drugged up on 50lbs of sugar.Acting was unreal...and I mean Unreal! Main character and co-star awesome. Being in the states I had no clue who either were, but I know them now.Main actor kinda like a combination of mel Gibson and Charles Bronson, co-star kinda like a serious woody harrilson.Over all - awesome. Really good flick to add to my collection of QUALITY unlike 99.99% of the <more>
Hollywood generic politically correct crap shoved down my throat daily!
the message of this splendid movie is this: (by ioan-fantanaru)
I watched this splendid film. The message is even more beautiful: Do not wait for events to happen in order to change yourself. that just in a certain point of your life ... you have to love someone, you have co care ... to realize that. And get away with life !Some of the best Quote of the movie: "You know, growing up out here in the bush. I wouldn't change it for anything. And I mean anything.But sometimes I can't help but.. I get this feeling that...I could't been...Or I should't been...Something more than...What I turned out. I tell myself not to listen. It's just <more>
this...Small piece inside...That's crying out to be me."
This was a very well done movie! The acting was superb and the screen writing was as well too. I really appreciated the quality of this movie and the acting which was so life like and authentic. I really appreciate movies like these that rely on the actors and not special affects or big names. Well done! Bravo.
Aussie cinematic gold...... (by s3276169)
Again and again, Australia proves it has an exceptional talent, for crafting quality cinema.Goldstone is yet another real Aussie gem of a film. Its a story that has depth and beauty, juxtaposed by self effacing, unapologetic, honesty. A reflection, in many ways, of the stark Australian outback, in which it is set. There's a good detective drama on offer here too, backed by a really soulful, back story. A story that, in a straightforward but touching way, draws the viewers attention to the sad reality of life, for minorities and those marginalized by society. Aaron Pedersen has much to be <more>
proud of in the lead role as police officer Jay Swan. Like the film itself, his performance is understated, yet, at times, almost inexplicably moving. The other cast members distinguish themselves too, including Alex Russell, who plays Swan's local police counterpart, Josh. In short Goldstone is remarkably well written, directed and acted. True Aussie cinematic gold. Nine out of ten from me.
This movie just came to the US and it was playing at the theater where I work. I wasn't really planning to see it because the poster looked pretty generic, but after watching the trailer I changed my mind because it looked very well shot and I have yet to see a bad Australian film. Man, am I glad I watched this. EVERY aspect of this movie is so well handled. The cinematography, directing, writing and acting are all so well done without being too flashy. It all fits with the story being told.Every single performance was great. I especially enjoyed Aaron Pederson's understated, <more>
tormented performance. Understated is actually an accurate adjective for all of this film. The only performance I thought was mediocre was the actress who played May. This was most likely the casting, but I would've liked her English to be more broken. I also felt she was a little too confident for the position she was in.The writing is really good. The story is nothing revolutionary but it's simple and effective. The movie is definitely slow but I was never bored. What I really loved was the dialogue. There were moments when it was very powerful but never heavy handed. I think the wonderful performances and subtle direction assisted in that. Also, I loved Josh's character arc. His arc, as well as the slow build up, made the climax SO satisfying.The cinematography was gorgeous but subtle. Expressive but never too flashy. Probably the best aerial shots I've personally seen in a movie. The shootout is so well shot and directed. Really got me going. All in all I would definitely recommend this to a patient movie-goer. I had a really great experience and enjoyed every second. This score is also something to be mentioned, beautiful and emotional.
The harsh climate of the Australian Outback is best watched on film or TV rather than actually living there, and Goldstone does it full justice. The driftwood and sand color palette corrugated iron shacks in the vast flat ochre landscape is stunning and the film is worth seeing for this if nothing else. I loved the slow almost dreamy style unusual for an action film, but unfortunately, due to the glacial pace of the action there isn't much else. Although Aaron Pedersen does a credible job, he really isn't given much to do, unlike the prequel, Mystery Road, he spends most of his time <more>
getting drunk or sobering up, with no explanation as to why he is on the grog. Maybe he needs a woman to brighten up his life. I am giving this film a 9 as it is the most visually beautiful arid desert photography since Lawrence of Arabia, but it lost a point with the tired old clichéd story line. How many more times are we going to see the big mining company acquiring land by foul means from indigenous people and farming folk who don't know any better, or if they do, are powerless to do anything about it? The mining companies have the politicians in their pockets and are allowed free rein to fence off property and guard it with private security thugs to hide the illegal activities which are going on. Their nefarious plans are usually exposed when someone goes missing, which brings in a nosy outside investigator with problems of his own who manages to survive various attempts to buy him off or kill him off. I am not knocking the story line, 'The Code' with an almost identical plot kept me awake all night as I binged on the episodes, but the familiarity makes the outcome predictable.My big question is where do they get the electricity to power the air conditioning those trailers must need in the furnace of the outback? Instead of shooting at people, all Jay and Josh had to do to flush out the villains was shoot out the trailer windows and the heat would have brought out the occupants in seconds. Lastly, although we never see a cell tower, I want to know how they always manage to get perfect cell phone reception in the middle of nowhere, when I can't get a perfect signal in a heavily populated area of 25 million. Does Australia have secret long range cell phone technology which they are keeping from the rest of us?Before watching Goldstone I was going to watch Mystery Road, but unfortunately Netflix has dropped it. Shame!
Goldstone essentially picks up where Mystery Road left off.Which is wonderful for the viewer, because Mystery Road is one of my favourite films, I am a huge fan of writer/director Ivan Sen, and Aaron Pedersen's "aboriginal detective" is one of my favourite all time film characters.What makes these films so special, aside from superb writing, acting, and direction? Cinematography --- as I said in my review of Mystery Road, the country itself is the unbilled co-star and the aerial shots are to die for.The themes. Sen is too good a writer to avoid core underlying themes of <more>
morality, good and evil, greed and kindness. Even when you think you are just watching a sunset, you realize there are other things going on.Which brings us to the true genius of this writer/director -- in the opinion of this reviewer, Sen manages to construct the tone and mood of a 1940s film noire in 21st century Australia, in daylight, and in full colour.If you think that is easy to do .. try it some time.Recommended.Don't be shy -- give it a try.
All the ugly side of Australia peeled away in a subtle way... (by DukeEman)
A wonderfully slow paced movie that gives you time to chew on the underlying fat of what is so screwed up with the Aussie outback political culture. Ivan Sen does not leave anything out, touching on the Stolen Generation, the rape and pillage by mining companies on sacred land, the destruction and disintegration of the Indigenous culture, and even the exploitation in the sex slave trade. It is ugly, almost revisiting that icon Australian movie, WAKE IN FRIGHT.It sometimes takes an outsider to see what is so wrong with a country, as Ted Kotcheff did with Wake In Fright, Louis Malle with Alamo <more>
Bay and Wim Wenders with almost everything he made in America. But Australia has its very own soul searching local filmmaker in Ivan Sen, who peels away those layers a bit at a time, with every layer revealing the true ugliness of this country.The plus side was the technical aspect, with the cinematography being the added bonus, perfectly capturing the mood in the isolated remote locations. Once again that was superbly handled by the director himself, who also had a hand in the music.If you are searching for a fast paced action thriller, than keep away from this movie. But if you desire to be challenged and mentally stimulated without having topics shoved down your throat, than seek this movie out, and enjoy what it has to offer.
As dark as Mystery Road.... Is this redemption? (by joebloggscity)
I found this film by accident as I didn't realise that they had made a sequel to the very intriguing and dark Mystery Road. Our lead is sent on a case again in the middle of nowhere in Australia, but he is a wreck not surprising when you look back on the first film . Anyhow, he ends up having to liaise with a local cop who is passive on all the ills he sees round him, and each is a foil for the other. There is mass corruption and life to some others is worthless, or local cop can end up in either direction, especially as he takes an emotional investment in the goings on of Human <more>
Trafficking of young Chinese women.So what we have is a case of redemption. Will the local cop leave the world as it is, or challenge the immorality? Everyone else seems to just play along, but our lead says no! Will the local cop back him or not?Like the first film, this is sumptuous, and the real star is the glorious cinematography, which contrasts the dark heart of the human soul. Yet we have hope in it all.Our lead is as intriguing as ever, and his own failings are something that endear you to him. I'm very happy they made this film, as we continue the journey. There's a Mad Max element to the lead character & story albeit no fantasy , but it's still violent and unforgiving.Again, this is a case worth investigating, and I can't wait to the next film in this series. Very dark yet very beautiful to watch, there's a heart in this movie and you will find it. Deserves better than the ratings so far have given it credit for.
