Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Apologies to Samson and Delilah, Mary and Max and Balibo: the one true great Australian film of 2009 was easily Joel Anderson's Lake Mungo, a mournful, dreamlike examination of the hole left in the heart of a family after a death.
Fresh: And don't deny yourself the film's final creepy images - stay for the credits...
Fresh: It's actually very nicely done, using untrained actors and the documentary form disconcertingly well to destabilise audience expectations at a number of points. Is there a ghost story? Why is the family so rattled? What's happening?
Fresh: It may be overstating it, but Anderson's command of cinematic language is right up there with Bryan Singer's audacious bag of tricks in The Usual Suspects.
Kind of boooooring
I usually enjoy movies like this. However, while watching this I was waiting and waiting for something to happen and it never does. They could have done so much more with that movie. This was really boring and not at all scary. The acting itself is not bad, there is no plot or any storyline.
The only horror in this film is the agony of sitting thru it for an hour & a 1/2. Boring Documentary
Don't bother seeing it.
Boring boring boring total waste of money!!!!
