At its most absorbing, Lasseter's story plays like an Aussie Treasure of the Sierra Madre, in which the main subject is a bit of a cypher whose true nature proves to be as difficult to pinpoint as that elusive gold.
[Walker's] enthusiasm is infectious, and in a way it's an asset that, unlike the majority of local documentary makers, he has no social or political axe to grind.
A muddled, boring film that circles back around on itself so many times that the effect is a bit like Groundhog Day.
While you could argue that the film is slightly too long, and that Walker reads too much into things that feel inconsequential, it remains a fascinating look into an unrecognised slice of Australian history.
Lassester's Bones is as much about the illumination of the myth surrounding the man as it is about man's desire to complete the incomplete and fulfil the unfulfilled. It's poetic, personal filmmaking.
A splendid example of the sort of subjective documentary film-making championed by Werner Herzog...director Luke Walker throws himself into the legend of Harold Lasseter, the explorer who claimed to have stumbled across a mother lode of gold.
It's a mythical story because of its scale and because of its mysteries, which Luke's intrepid journey seems to have enlarged.
