KOKODA In 1942 Japanese fighters landed on the northern coast of Papua New Guinea intending to capture Port Moresby and invade Australia. The only Australian soldiers available to face the onslaught are a small force of untrained volunteers ridiculed as the Chocolate Soldiers, or Chocos as they are expected to melt in the heat of battle. Sustained bombardment from the Japanese cuts them off from supply lines and communication. Isolated they survive without food, carrying their wounded for three days as they fight their way through some of the most perilous and unforgiving terrain on earth: the Kokoda track. The ensemble cast is uniformly excellent and first time director Grierson handles the action with economy and confidence. Jules O’Loughlin’s cinematography evocatively captures the mud and blood as well as the lush beauty of the tropical landscape. John Gray’s score gives the film an appropriate profundity. Occasionally harrowing (how could it be anything else?) this film is not only a stirring and valuable tribute to the soldiers, but an awe inspiring, thrillingly original piece of cinema. BEYOND THE SEA Kevin Spacey's buoyant biography of Bobby Darin is an off-beat portrait of the crooner. From 50s bubblegum pop icon to his heyday as a lounge headliner in the 60s to his hippy comeback in the 70s, Spacey contrasts real life drama with musical set pieces to create a whimsical and colourful portrait of this lesser known artist. As a young boy Darin was told he wouldn't see fifteen, something which sparked his quest for immortality as an artist. Supported by his loving mother and sister (there is no father in the picture), young Bobby found himself shooting to teen-idol stature with the pop ditty

Gordon Campbell: On What We Could Do For Hong Kong, If Only We Dared

There has been something repulsive about PM Jacinda Ardern’s assurances that our joint 5 Eyes criticism of China’s actions over Hong Kong – and China’s harsh reaction – are all well understood on both sides. According to Ardern, it has been a case of us saying the sort of things we’ve said before, them acknowledging our need to do so, and then them responding much as we would expect them to do. All neat and tidy. Frankly, if all of this is merely virtue signalling on our part, and huffy declarations of independence on their part, then what’s the point of this diplomatic dance..? More>>
