The film-maker underdog and the Australian way

Starrs, D. Bruno (2007) The film-maker underdog and the Australian way. RealTime: +onscreen, 77, p. 24.

Abstract

Alec Morgan's documentary biopic "Hunt Angels" (2006) is reviewed. The suggestion is made that it is the Australian way to make biopics about under-dogs and that the 'cultural cringe' that impeded this film's subjects, early Australian film-makers Rupert Kathner and Alma Brooks, is now an anti-Hollywood 'cultural sneer'.
