Movie Info

In 1931, Harold Lasseter's body was found in the Central Australian desert. His diary revealed he'd discovered gold -- worth billions of dollars today -- but he'd give it all away for a loaf of bread and a chance at survival. The gold has never been found. Filmmaker Luke Walker finds Lasseter's 85 year-old son, still wandering the desert trying to find the gold that killed his father. Is it still possible to piece together the fragments of history Lasseter left behind? Armed with a camera, Walker chases his footsteps in hopes to unravel the tangle of myths, lies and legend that remain buried with Lasseter's bones. But as he follows his last few steps he finds himself closer to the gold than anyone has been for 80 years. Do you dare join the adventure and take part in the quest for Australia's Lost Gold?

Critic Reviews for Lasseter's Bones

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (1)

  • 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.

    September 11, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Though varying little in style and structure from similar first-person investigative efforts, Walker's film is sustained not only by his intriguing take on an interesting topic, but by the filmmaker's personable presence.

    May 22, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A muddled, boring film that circles back around on itself so many times that the effect is a bit like Groundhog Day.

    May 26, 2016 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    September 11, 2014 | Full Review…
  • 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.
