Critic Reviews for The Magician
Mostly, however, this dreary Antipodean curiosity is a yob-filled slog of hard-man posturing, all of it bathed in an oppressive testosterone funk. And I haven't even mentioned the hairy buttocks.
The camera has penetrated the fabric of everyday life in unsettling and insidious ways, but not quite enough to mistake the pseudo-documentary-ness of The Magician for recorded reality.
A gritty, shot-off-the cuff gem and a top prize winner in its native Australia.
The Magician, while predominantly a character study, does highlight how comfortable Australia is with criminality.
The Aussie New Wave sends out a very indie understated crime thriller.
Audience Reviews for The Magician
Genuinly funny film with some really sharp moments. Brilliant view into the mind of a 'hitman'. Well worth a watch.
