Audience Reviews for True History of the Kelly Gang

    I appreciate that the movie is trying to pull apart the mythology of history but the imagery eventually becomes tiresome and repetitive.

    I think where this film shines is the visuals Justin Kurzel presents are amazingly gorgeous for being within rural potions of Australia it is often beautifully stylized with a lot of interesting choices when it comes to what we the audience are allowed to see in the frame, The biggest thing holding this film back is that every single character is despicable and I do mean "despicable" like that guy should not be allowed women or children or anyone for that matter. Although within the context of this movie the story revolves around a family of violent bandits with a protagonist whose role models were themselves totally despicable murderers and bushwhackers. This film had me thinking about the movie The Proposition and how I favored the protagonist Guy Pierce plays in Charlie, who is a bandit who seeks redemption and the freedom of his brother by hunting down his violent eldest brother. Such a protagonist is not to be found in this film which makes me ponder why I liked this film so much. I think it may be that it is a really interesting study of what masculinity is and if it is even real or just some social construct that is devoid of real quantifiable form.
