I wasn't going to join any challenges for a while but once again I can't resist:

01. They're a Weird Mob (1966) Educational but corny.

02. Alvin Purple (1973) A bit outdated.

03. Beneath Clouds (2002) Pretty descent road movie with some great acting.

04. Angel Baby (1995) Great start mounts into cheap sentiment. Jacqueline McKenzie nails it.

05. Annie's Coming Out (1984) Surreal overacting and extremely cheap sentiment ruined it.

06. Cunnamulla (2000) Haunting and depressing look at the life of people in the middle of nowhere.

07. Strictly Ballroom (1992) Nothing special but just a good way to spend some time.

I'm not sure I'll watch many films, but I'll join in for the fun of it :

01 - Walkabout, by Nicolas Roeg (1971) 9/10

Very strong imagery and great storytelling. I also would love to hear John Barry's score again...

Strange movie, but also an intriguing one, with good visual ideas.

10. The Sentimental Bloke (1919)

This is the worst film I've seen during the challenge. The story wasn't bad but the intertitles ruined it. They purposely made as many grammatical errors as possible, about half of the words were misspelled, and lots of letters were omitted, which made it seem like every character was retarded.

I cannot watch anymore for this challenge, which is sad! I have about 5-10 more to see in the near future. Maybe I can see those before I go to Sydney this summer.

Utu isn't coming in from the library until Tuesday, so I guess I'm out as well. Thanks to HVM for hosting, it's been a fun month.
