Peeling colonialism, awakening and the Dawn of Man are fiercely indicated in Roeg's wondrous fever

The overt symbolism hampers a subject and approach that could have led to a sublime result.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

Walkabout's obvious concern is the relationship between two parties, separated by centuries of diverting societal behaviors, and thus, differentiated perceptions of sexual roles and etiquette. But what ensues is more ambiguous and interpretative.

Movie Metropolis

Roeg creates in Walkabout a world of his own, a microcosmos that is at once beautiful, primitive, wild, familiar yet unfamiliar, thoughtful, and thought provoking.

Roeg would go on to better films, but the basics of his approach are found in this landmark work of haunting beauty and ugliness.

An innocent family picnic turns existential in Nicolas Roeg's brilliant Walkabout.

Roeg intercuts images of modern life with the lushness of nature -- offering a stunning fable about the importance of respecting the earth.

Roeg's points about the contrasts between noble savages and civilized effetes don't stand up terribly well over time. Still, much of the film does hold up.

In the day since I've seen the film, I cannot put it out of my mind. Its images continue to be savored, and I will never forget the three travelers through the desert.

Is it a parable about noble savages and the crushed spirits of city dwellers? That's what the film's surface seems to suggest, but I think it's also about something deeper and more elusive: The mystery of communication.

For the most part, Walkabout is an involving, occasionally hypnotic, motion picture.
