Movie Info

A prismatic view of acclaimed cartoonist-philosopher Michael Leunig. Filmed over five eventful years, we observe Michael grappling with life, art and mortality. The reflections of an ageing man encompass the curious boy-Leunig; past, present and future hopes and dreams collide in this portrait of one of Australia's most prolific artists.

  • It's both an engaging and frustrating film. Leunig wants to draw us near the flame, but not too near. Burgess doesn't like to push.

  • For better or, more often, for worse, it is a collection of fragments.

  • There is a jarring lack of depth, and what we're left with are mere glimpses into such an extraordinary life. Rather than painting a full picture, loose threads are weaved throughout that are never fully realised.

  • Over 90 minutes this documentary goes from a pleasantly warm hagiography to one of the most insightful looks at a major Australian creative figure in years

  • We see heaps of the cartoons, and these reminders of Leunig's very unusual style and wit are alone reason to see The Leunig Fragments.
