Critic Reviews for Bad Boy Bubby
this dark satire-cum-parable (cling)wraps itself in a quirkily beautiful aesthetic that keeps us watching even when the material is at its most repellent or alarming.
You may not understand Bubby, but damn if you won't want to take him home with you -- if only for an hour or so.
The success of the film is largely due to the bravura performance by Hope.
The miracle of casting; with Bad Boy Bubby, Rolf de Heer plucked Nicholas Hope from obscurity and gave him the role of his acting life
Audience Reviews for Bad Boy Bubby
There's a side of people, mostly hidden, that's as sick and twisted as anything you can ever imagine ... and then there's the other side, and that's mostly hidden too. This film explores both sides, and some grey areas in between, in a way that most works of fiction don't. One might be shocked, but most residents of this planet won't be. It's not what this film says that's shocking, it's that it's said at all. Great, adventurous filmmaking here. Very impressive.
Bad boy Bubby is a pretty disturbing film of non-social conditioning with severe reprocussions. I have to be honest I found it hard to get past the first 10 minutes, I shut it off twice because of the cat scene, then I read a reveiw saying once you get past the first bit of the film, the theme moves forward,but you need to see the first 10 mins to set the storyline. Defintiely a unique film, with an obvious low budget. There are some really good points and thought provoking moments and then there are the distrubing parts mentioned. You'll have to make your own mind up on that one!
After being raised with no knowledge of the outside world in a fallout shelter by his abusive, mentally ill mother, middle-aged Bubby is suddenly released into a modern Australian society he can hardly comprehend, but must learn to fit into somehow. An interesting, relentlessly offbeat character study that, despite some disturbing incidents, emerges with a real affection for its subject.
