    —Warning: this review contains spoilers—


    I honestly don’t even know where to begin with Picnic at Hanging Rock. It’s one of the most intricate, symbolic, and bizarre films I have ever seen. Much like its central mystery, the film eludes explanation, representing a question that cannot and, I suppose, should not be answered. It’s an unusual amalgamation of a Victorian period piece, a metaphysical exploration, and a coming-of-age story. In any other hands, that would be extremely difficult to pull…

I watched a 21-minute version, which I found rather confusing, and a 25-minute version which I found to be superior.

    Frankly, I have no idea why I decided…

    A Recollection... Hanging Rock 1900

    ★★★½

    I love a good on-set documentary, mainly because the film itself is still so new for the cast and crew. Instead of a reflection on the past, it’s an exciting reflection on the present, which isn’t something you get very often in a film documentary. It was a little clunky and gave the impression of being made in a hurry, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.
