Film Review

The title of Peter Weir's 1981 war film Gallipoli scrawls onto the screen in a blood red hue sitting on top of a blank, black background leaving it to stand out even more; a Hellish writing itself looking like it's been inscribed in blood as it stands – if we listen carefully, we can hear the feint sounds of some organ keys suggesting some kind of Gothic horror sensibility about these early proceedings. Where the film will end up might as well be Hell, the worst place in the world anybody could be; let alone the clusters of those aged below twenty-or so whom ended up on the front-lines of Europe fighting World War One. Weir's film wonderfully captures that madness of war, and centres on a handful of people still early on in their lives put out to face the chorus' of death; blending in a blackly amusing tract as they attempt to make sense of their surroundings and get by through the absurdest nature of this close-knit warfare that they face.It is Australia, and…

I've long been a fan of Peter Weir, a director who I find is able to bring a sincerity and honesty to even the most emotionally manipulative stories. Whether it's a man whose entire world has been fabricated as a television show or a good old teacher inspiring his students yarn, I think Weir is able to do what most directors are not in that he can make these potentially absurd stories feel true and grounded. So when a director like him takes on a true event that is grounded in some of the most sincere themes in history, as he did with Gallipoli, it's no surprise that the outcome is going to be one of his best films, if not his best.The title Gallipoli is taken from the Gallipoli Campagin, where Weir focuses his attention on Battle of the Nek, a famous attack by the Australians in Turkey during the First World War. It would have been easy to focus on the attack itself, or the entire Campaign, but Weir is more introduced on the human aspect and he uses this event in the h…

Two Australian sprinters face the brutal realities of war when they are sent to fight in the Gallipoli campaign in Turkey during World War I.The Australian sprinters from the outback are played persuasively by MEL Gibson and MARK LEE, both young and enthusiastic as the runners who form a close bond despite the fact that Gibson's character is not anxious to fight with the troops in a war far removed from his homeland.The story is a bit ponderous for the first half, gradually building up the relationship of two youths who become the best of mates once they both enter the armed forces. But the buildup has enough holding power to keep the viewer watching until the climactic battle scenes, obviously designed to show the futility and horrors of trench warfare in 1914. The final freeze shot of Lee's character emphasizes the tragedy of it all–what with missed communications causing the war to continue instead of coming to a halt when Gibson's message arrives too late to save a…
