A tremendously memorable film!
I watched this wonderful film last night on television after having, unfortunately, missed it during its house release several years ago. Even though it would have been far better to see the beautiful cinematography on the big screen I was still moved and highly impressed with this historically insightful look under the carpet of our history.
It is an interesting coincidence that I watched The Proposition several days ago and was able to watch The Tracker last night-both films, although separated by roughly fifty years, still circle the same historical period in that they both deal with Australia’s adolescence and it is this historical backdrop that binds these films together in my mind.
If a film returns to my thoughts after I have watched it, regardless of the geographical setting or the chronological period, that film is successful by my standards and if you wakeup the next morning replaying scenes of the film then it certainly is a winner-that is exactly what happened this morning. De Heer’s script and direction created a haunting movie. The subtlety of the nuances made for a deeply intellectual journey through the tracks of these different people embroiled in activities beyond their understanding. Is this the paradigm of human existence? De Heer is to be congratulated for writing a scrip dealing with historical topics generally bypassed by commercial film makers and then directing that film with such sensitivity and understanding. It is rare to see a film that paints such a critical view of the relationship of the Aboriginal people and the close-mindedness of the Anglo settlers during that first century of contact. The definitive film about this contact has yet to be made and I for one anxiously await its production. We know so little, even if we make a concerted effort to locate the sources, about this early period of racial interaction. In the history of the world has there been such a diametrically antagonistic confrontation between peoples? The accuracy of this contact drama seems to have been lost because of the very nature of the discontinuity between these peoples. De Heer attempted to redress this lack of information and due to the brilliance of his insights, as well as the brilliance of the cast, we the audience are the better for having watched their work.
Another Aussie Gem
As a previous reviewer said, the movie ‘moved at the pace of a stubborn mule’, which was indeed the perfect pace for this disparate foursome moving through our beautiful outback scenery at as slow a pace as the Tracker possibly could in his efforts to remain comfortably behind the fugitive. But even then he did once get dangerously close and immediately went into his own fake sacred dance and chant to give reason why they should stop for the night at that point.
I thought it was magnificent. A grim topic, a past that shames every Australian to this day, except of course for those like our beloved PM whose compassion chip has been surgically removed.
But it was so very Australian, so laconic, couldn’t ever have remotely been a story of the American frontier. The Fanatic says to the Tracker “I believe you tried to kill me there” and receives the reply “No hard feelings, boss”.
Our film making industry has produced yet another true gem.
