ACTOR/DIRECTOR TO WATCH:
ANITA: Dee McLachlan, director of The Jammed. This film is a revelation. The most important film you’ll see this year, viewers will be shocked and sickened by what McLachlan’s investigation of the sex slave trade reveals about Australia. In addition, it has to be noted that the adversity the film has faced to get a distribution is astounding and deplorable. Australian films struggle enough to be made without having distribution and film festival doors shut in their faces. McLachlan must be applauded for her artistic vision and determination.
BEST AUSTRALIAN FILM:
ANITA: The Jammed. It is simply unforgivable not to see this film. By far the best film of 2007, it is astounding to think that its content was considered so potent that it was going straight to DVD.
DENEE: Sorry, I haven’t watch any this year. So instead I will name my favourite documentary, which was Michael Moore’s Sicko, for reminding me why private health insurers are evil.
PHILIPPA: The Jammed is a tour de force of Australian filmmaking. Initially knocked back by distributors for being too dark, it’s been embraced by the viewing public and critically acclaimed. There’s a lesson there somewhere! Truly excellent performances, a compelling story, a flawless script and ace directing makes this a must-see.
DANIEL: The Jammed. The most important, harrowing, film you’ll see this year.
