  • Issue 88 - 'Can't be in the place anymore': The Australian gothic and the
           oppressive home in jasper Jones
    • Abstract: White, Claire
      On the outskirts of a tall and looming forest in the south of Western Australia is a quiet timber town. Establishing shots reveal the empty streets and weatherboard houses. This isolated, fictional town, Corrigan, is familiar, yet is not as peaceful as it may seem. Adapted from the book of the same name by novelist Craig Silvey, Jasper Jones (2017) is a startling expose of the sinister side of small-town Australian life. Directed by Rachel Perkins, who also helmed 2009's Bran Nue Dae and several episodes of the TV series Redfern Now, the film tells the story of the bright and inquisitive Charlie Bucktin (Levi Miller), who, in the middle of the night on Christmas Day 1969, is awoken by town outcast Jasper Jones (Aaron McGrath) pleading for his help. Leading him to the middle of the forest, Jasper reveals to Charlie the dead body of local girl Laura Wishart (Nandalie Campbell Killick), and the pair take it upon themselves to figure out who killed her. True to the Australian Gothic genre, by the end of the narrative, Charlie will realise just what it means to live in a small rural town, and will be made aware of the oppression that members of the community live under. This relates, firstly, to the racism inflicted upon both the title character and the Vietnamese family of Charlie's best friend Jeffrey Lu (Kevin Long), and, secondly, to the home as a site of oppression and horror for female characters, a common motif in the Australian Gothic genre.

  • Issue 88 - Life on a loop: The enduring appeal of groundhog day
    • Abstract: Godfrey, Nicholas
      Few films have entered the cultural imagination as pervasively as Groundhog Day (Harold Ramis, 1993). The title itself has become a kind of linguistic shorthand, referring to the sense of being trapped in some kind of undesirable recurring situation. Yet while the central narrative conceit may seem overwhelmingly familiar by now, the film itself remains a tangled web of contradictions: a high-concept romantic comedy with a surprising amount of pathos and a genuinely dark undercurrent. In hindsight, it represents a career highlight for its stars, Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell, as well as for its director. It is also a work of rich thematic depth, and provides a useful entry point for considerations of altruism, happiness, and deeper existential and metaphysical concerns.

  • Issue 88 - Sync or swim paper
    • Abstract: Lavery, Kevin
      As the world turns and time passes - processes that both are commonly known for - technology keeps changing and evolving. We keep getting new things and shinier versions of old things with new whistles and bigger bells. People like me get to have a quarterly column explaining just how whistle-y the whistle parts are and why (magnets, I assume). But in among all the newness and shininess, there is one pervasive problem, especially with the sort of tech that we normally cover here: it's that automatic shuttering that occurs in response to the word 'creative' (or sometimes even just to the smell of it). It's like something out of a western: everyone scrambling around, jumping through windows and hiding behind barrels; that one guy jumping into the horse trough and turning it over on himself. I heard from a friend of a friend once that if you say 'creative' in front of a mirror three times, Salvador Dal comes out and melts your moustache. There is something about the 'c'-word that makes people cringe and squirm. And it's in this rush to proclaim, 'I'm not creative,' and block off any possible creative osmosis that they miss the point of 'creative' apps.

    • Abstract: Dooley, Kath
      After years of conjecture and development, virtual reality film making has at last truly emerged, expanding possibilities for narrative development and the role of the spectator. KATH DOOLEY takes a look at three notable recent Australian virtual reality works, analysing how each of them addresses the medium's potential and challenges.

  • Issue 88 - Time regained: Intertextuality and the hours
    • Abstract: McFarlane, Brian
      A film always exists both as an entity unto itself and as part of a greater network of ideas and influences. Few films make that clearer than Stephen Daldry's The Hours, an adaptation of a novel that, in turn, draws on the life and work of revered twentieth-century author Virginia Woolf. Exploring the film's various connections, BRIAN MCFARLANE argues that context can only aid in its appreciation.

      The sitcom has been a mainstay of family entertainment since its inception. As LOUISE LAVERY explains, its stable of solid archetypes, predictable story arcs and easily discerned messages can make it a valuable resource for teaching narrative structure in the junior secondary English classroom.

  • Issue 88 - A moment of recognition: Spectator identification in memento
    • Abstract: Goodall, Zoe
      In 1955, film scholars Raymond Borde and Etienne Chaumeton contended that the aim of film noir was for the spectator to experience the same 'anguish and insecurity' as the protagonist does. The criminal activity and lack of clear-cut morality inherent to film noir, they argued, 'conspire' to put the viewer in a state of tension. They suggested that the very intention of noir filmmakers was for the spectator to be able to identify with the protagonist and their 'specific alienation'.1 Often, first-person narration, also called the voiceover, is utilised in film noir to create this effect. This technique is certainly the most well-known, and arguably the most commonly utilised, for creating identification between protagonist and spectator in this genre. However, Memento (Christopher Nolan, 2000) demonstrates that there are multiple techniques in film noir beyond first-person narration that can be used to create the emotional effect referred to by Borde and Chaumeton.

  • Issue 88 - Michael haneke
    • Abstract: Carew, Anthony
      The most astonishing revelation of Yves Montmayeur's documentary study Michael H - Profession: Director (2013), is that its subject, forebidding Austrian auteur Michael Haneke, is a jovial fellow. The iconic filmmaker (born in 1942, in Munich, to a theatrical family) is shown on set, and shown to be having a good time. He jokes with the cast. When laughing, he veritably giggles. He hugs people. He's warm and affable, creating a comfortable work environment. Some might even say that Haneke seems friendly.

  • Issue 88 - Cinema science: Finding Nemo, finding dory and the study of the
           sea
    • Abstract: Crewe, David
      Over its short lifespan thus far, Cinema Science has gone into outer space with Passengers (Morten Tyldum, 2016) and on the open road with the Fast and the Furious franchise. In this instalment, we'll be going under the sea with Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo (Alexander Gould / Hayden Rolence1). Conscious that the physics of space and projectile motion are geared more towards senior secondary science than junior students, I've chosen to dive into Finding Nemo (Andrew Stanton, 2003) and Finding Dory (Stanton, 2016) in the hope of finding something useful for primary and junior Science teachers to explore in their classrooms.

    • Abstract: Marriner, Katy
      In Kitty Green's documentary, inhabitants of Boulder, Colorado, reflect on the horrific - and, to this day, unsolved - murder of JonBenet Ramsey. Ostensibly, they are there to audition for a film about the events, but it turns out that it is they - their lives, connections to the case and theories as to what transpired on that fateful Christmas night in 1996 - who are the real subjects. Closely analysing the film, KATY MARRINER offers some thought-provoking discussion points for senior secondary classrooms.

Another common feature is that these central characters are usually male. Suzie Gibson explores what happens when a complex, even unlikeable, young woman takes centre stage.

  • Issue 87 - Inside out: Grown-up discussions for little ones
    • Abstract: Lavery, Louise
      The ever-increasing complexity and sophistication of children's films perhaps reached its peak with Pixar's groundbreaking 2015 animation, in which audiences are literally taken inside a young character's head to explore her complicated emotional responses. The film continues to offer an excellent way to teach the value of ostensibly negative emotions to primary students.

  • Issue 87 - Taking on tradition: Coming of age and conformity in 'Dead
           Poets Society'
    • Abstract: Wallin, Zoe
      Beloved by students and frequently disparaged by teachers, 'Dead Poets Society' (Peter Weir, 1989) continues to resonate with new generations of viewers. This is surprising, given the narrowness of the film's milieu: an elite 1950s American boarding school populated by privileged white boys. Yet, the romanticised themes of adolescent nonconformity and the development of individual identity, the performances by Robin Williams and the ensemble cast (which include Ethan Hawke and Robert Sean Leonard in early screen roles) and director Weir's sensitive handling of the material mean that, for young viewers, the film holds riches beyond blinkered nostalgia.

    • Abstract: Carew, Anthony
      American filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer's twin documentaries on the Indonesian genocide of 1965-1966 present us with opposing perspectives - those of persecuted and perpetrator - that confront us with the continuing reverberations of the horrific mass murders. As Anthony Carew explores, these brave pieces of cinematic testimony also highlight the power of storytelling to shape our conceptions of history, morality and humanity, as well as its ability to kindle societal change.

  • Issue 87 - Sync or swim: Office mix
    • Abstract: Lavery, Kevin
      The big buzzphrase of the moment in education is, as ever, 'flipped learning'. Like the schoolies prank everyone has heard of - the one that happened at a friend of a friend's brother's high school involving stolen roadworks signs, the cling-wrapping of the principal's car, detergent in the water fountains or cows being led upstairs - the term's meaning changes a little bit every time it comes up, with each new reference to it incorporating some truth, some myth and a lot of suspension of disbelief. Depending on the source, you'll hear flipped learning defined as 'the be-all and end-all of education', 'the future of teaching', 'how we, as teachers, need to change our practice for the learners of today ... something something You- Tube mobile phone', or 'something I'd like to do but have neither the time nor the skills for; nor, most importantly, the equipment'.

  • Issue 87 - Alfred Hitchcock
    • Abstract: Mogg, Ken
      All his adult life, English filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock (1899-1980) was a professional crowdpleaser. No doubt this showed the influence of his mentor, fellow director Graham Cutts, whose films often emphasised theatrical spectacle. Astutely, Hitchcock kept in touch with critics and (selected) intellectuals, such as his communist friend Ivor Montagu. After hours, he attended both wrestling matches and symphony concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, and was a frequent visitor to art galleries. (He was trained in draughtsmanship.) Always, he had an eye for the big picture, while maintaining, in his wife Alma's words, 'the most completely balanced mind I have ever known'. Not so, many of his characters: typically they found themselves plunged into bizarre situations that threatened to overwhelm them. The result for audiences might be suspenseful, or comic, or both. That suited Hitchcock, who, a touch sadistically, defined his role as 'to put the audience through it'. Recently, a Lacanian scholar described 'Hitchcock's essential cinematic project' as 'staging the encounter with the Real'. That may be true, although, as a director of adventure thrillers (most with a romantic element), what particularly concerned Hitchcock was the human dimension. The character nicknamed Scottie (James Stewart) in Vertigo (1958) spends the film searching for 'the key'; the search is the essential thing. To have dwelt on implacable evil or the indifference of the universe would have been out of place. Hitchcock told an interviewer: 'I've never been interested in professional criminals. The audience can't identify with their lack of feeling.' Each Hitchcock picture was a world, with its own distinctive tone and style - although such worlds invariably shared the 'person wronged' motif - and for the viewer, at least, the illusion while watching them was of a modest scale, of events metaphorically if not literally down-to-earth. (This was generally true, whether the film was a cross-country chase or was set in one room.) Perhaps such deceptiveness explains why Hitchcock never won an Academy Award for Best Director: pictures aren't supposed to feel this accessible! Still, he was twice 'compensated' by his peers in Hollywood (where he had moved at the end of the 1930s): first, in 1968, with the Irving G Thalberg Memorial Award for his body of work; and, second, in 1979, when he received an AFI Life Achievement Award.

  • Issue 87 - Cinema science: 'The Fast and the Furious' and the mechanics of
           dangerous driving
    • Abstract: Crewe, David
      High-octane chases, perilous capers and speed beyond our comprehension - these and more characterise the incredibly successful 'Fast and the Furious' franchise. But do the super-vehicles in these movies even come close to what cars can do in reality' David Crewe investigates the science behind the stunts, and suggests ways for teachers to capitalise on the films' adrenaline-filled spectacle in a classroom setting.

  • Issue 87 - Ahistorical visions: Race and the influence of the Hollywood
           epic in Baz Luhrmann's 'Australia'
    • Abstract: Donald, Ella
      The opening title card of Baz Luhrmann's Australia (2008) bills its setting as an almost mythical land: one of 'crocodiles, cattle barons and warrior chiefs, where adventure and romance was a way of life'. The description sounds more Indiana Jones than historical epic, filtering facts through a Vaseline lens to present a beautified, cinematic country. This approach comes from a wide variety of influences, but most notably from one (now relatively unproduced) type of film: the lavish historical epic. Australia appears to borrow liberally from films such as Gone with the Wind (Victor Fleming, 1939), Lawrence of Arabia (David Lean, 1962), Out of Africa (Sydney Pollack, 1985), Heaven's Gate (Michael Cimino, 1980), Once upon a Time in the West (Sergio Leone, 1968) and Red River (Howard Hawks and Arthur Rosson, 1948). These extravagant works place their white protagonists in historical contexts - for instance, the American Civil War or a period of European colonial rule - that are in opposition to both their harsh surroundings and the passionate romances in which they find themselves. The lushness in these works often feels voyeuristic and uncomfortably tourism-focused for films based on much more historically unsettling realities. Due to their concealment of less glamorous facts, these films are littered with insensitivities and romanticised depictions of colonialism. These are problems that reverberate in the way they influence other films. The role of these influences on Australia must first be considered through its plot and aesthetics, before looking at their overall effect on the film and whether Luhrmann's directorial choices critique or reflect their politics. Does Australia transcend its predecessors' colonialist ideology by communicating a message about white Australia's imperialist history, or does it merely replicate it'

  • Issue 87 - 'Vampires don't do dishes': Mockumentary, the undead and 'What
           we do in the shadows'
    • Abstract: Ward, Sarah
      'I wanted to have a quick chat about flat responsibilities,' Viago (Taika Waititi) tells his housemates Vladislav (Jemaine Clement) and Deacon (Jonathan Brugh). They're gathered around the kitchen table to discuss chores in their shared Wellington accommodation, in a scene that will be recognisable to anyone who has cohabited with others. Viago first spends time rounding up the group from their slumber: knocking on doors, explaining why their meeting is important, negotiating a time that suits everyone and accepting that the fourth of their number, Petyr (Ben Fransham), simply won't be joining them despite the fact that he's home. Once they're assembled, he runs through a list of recurring issues that have clearly been bothering him for some time - recycling, sweeping the hallway, stains on communal furniture, crockery left unwashed.
