Movie Info

Utopia is John Pilger's new feature documentary. The Bafta and Emmy winning film-maker and journalist draws on his long association with the first people of his homeland, Australia. Utopia is both an epic portrayal of the oldest continuous human culture and an investigation into a suppressed colonial past and rapacious present. One of the world's best kept secrets is revealed against a background of the greatest boom in mineral wealth. Has the 'lucky country' inherited South African apartheid?

Despite its flaws in conception and coverage, this is an angry and sorrowful film about an important subject and it's typical of Pilger.

A bleak but powerful film, Pilger reminds us that resolving the issues of Indigenous people is far from over.

Pilger's powerful film has the unmistakable ring of truth.

If you want to see corruption in the raw, track down Utopia.

Veteran investigator John Pilger has an extraordinary story to tell about white Australia and its deeply dysfunctional relationship with the Indigenous Australian community.

When the subject and subjects are allowed to speak for themselves - when Pilger doesn't stand and preach - the injustices glow like throbbing wounds.

To see this is to engage with arguably the most shocking case of political and social oppression in an affluent country.

John Pilger's compassionate direction and diligent investigations deserve enormous credit as his poignant and detailed documentary exposes the harrowing treatment of Australian's black natives.

Pilger made Utopia to make Australians sit up and listen. It's no-nonsense, provocative, powerful and sickening stuff.

The filmmaker firebrand is in pungent form as he dismantles the hypocrisy of Australia's treatment of its indigenous peoples.

What Utopia lacks in finesse it more than makes up for in passion.
