Sunday Too Far Away feature film – 1975

The defining elements of a great 1970s Australian film are all here – empty, confronting landscapes, hard-drinking Aussie blokes, and a sense of 'the great Australian loneliness’.

Storm Boy feature film – 1976

Seamlessly woven into this story about one boy’s love of a pelican, are such themes as race relations, ecology, and family breakdown.

Breaker Morant feature film – 1979

Much of the film is about youth versus experience, honesty versus cynicism and political expediency – an interesting ethical domain given that it’s a film about war crimes.

Money Movers feature film – 1979

Money Movers was ahead of its time, and may have suffered because of that. It’s a 'crime procedural’, a genre that is now much more popular.

The Club feature film – 1980

The Club, adapted from David Williamson’s play, is set at a time when professionalism was taking over the game.

Playing Beatie Bow feature film – 1985
