The Go-Betweens: Right Here

The passionate, creative and fraught set of relationships that formed this iconic Australian rock band is explored in this documentary.

"Director Kriv Stenders uncovers the people who made The Go-Betweens. Conceived in Brisbane in the late 1970s, and fronted by singer-songwriters and guitarists Robert Forster and Grant McLennan, the band recorded such resonant Australian classics as 'Streets of Your Town' and 'Cattle and Cane'. They were later joined by Lindy Morrison on drums, and Amanda Brown on violin and oboe, among others, before disbanding in 1989 and reforming in 2000. With extraordinary access, music clips, and a distinctively Queensland style, Stenders follows the band's three decades, through countless successes, failures, romances, break-ups, betrayals, triumphs and tragedies."

Kriv Stenders (Red Dog) grew up in Brisbane and loved the band from that time. He puts together a thoughtful, engaging, enigmatic movie that does not try to do too much.

There are actually enough sudden shifts in mood, location, fortune and romantic status in this tale to warrant consideration for a dramatised feature at some point in the future.

There are devices and tricks here that could have proved pretentious or annoying ... but most of it works beautifully, and there are many striking moments...
