Road movie is a truckin' waste of energy.
Fun then fierce, light then laconic, Prime Mover is primarily entertaining, and there's nothing wrong with that.
An uneasy blend of whimsy with elements that are deliberately harsh or humdrum.
David Caesar, in his fifth feature, captures something real about the lives of these people. It has a nice brittle quality, a sort of sad and melancholy truth.
Ambitious, colourful and jolting film, which succeeds on the back of its winning performances and strain of magic realism.
There is barely enough to Prime Mover's story to sustain a full-length feature, let alone the attention of restless viewers.
Prime Mover deals in the everyday lives of recognisably Australian characters in a way that makes their journey matter to us. And it does it in unique style
Big dreams, harsh reality and a quirky fantasy make up the engine of David Caesar's likeable new film, in which a prime mover is the prime motivation of his pie-in-the-sky protagonist
Were it not for Thomas's convoluted personal story, and a rather unlikable performance from Dorman who struggles to channel the idealistic, hard-as-steel spirit of his character, I might have liked it more.
David Caesar has been wanting to make this for decades... and I think there's a maturity with this film that is really lovely.
The collision of styles and genre ideas runs along a familiar road, losing control when the paint job can't disguise what's under the bonnet.
