Veteran investigator John Pilger has an extraordinary story to tell about white Australia and its deeply dysfunctional relationship with the Indigenous Australian community.
Utopia is a defining anti-colonial film which condemns Australians with as much fury as it does the endless system of bureaucracy which enables them.
[W]hile much of Utopia won't be shocking to the extreme left-leaning audience it appears tailor-made for, if the abuse Pilger has documented here makes just one unsuspecting viewer look at race relations a little differently then it's worked.
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.
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.
