The Press Reviews

  • There's a story here somewhere but I suspect the nub of it is at the beginning of Hall's bushranging career, rather than the end. Whatever the truth of it, Holmes is too tentative in his attempts to tease it out. Full Review

  • Writer/director Matthew Holmes steers and controls the film's tone with a single minded focus that serves the film well, appealing to the serious historian and invested film lover. Full Review

  • impressive feature bold in its sense of ambition and rich with character-driven intimacy. Full Review

  • ABC

    ...a rich, if flawed, portrait of a haunted man and a romantic tribute to the Australian bush as a mirage of freedom. Full Review

  • ...far too long ... the actors aren’t always up to it, and yet it’s still worth persevering with, right down to the you-saw-it-coming, sub-Bonnie And Clyde ending. Full Review
