Movie Reviews

Reviewed by movieguy3000 3 / 10


The lack of reviews on here is a testament to the films failure of no-one having even heard of the film or it didn't even have a pulse enough for people to waste their time any further. Firstly the film is photographed well and some of the locations ring true of west-sydney but some don't actually represent the true real-life locations that we all know well. There are a few good actors, but i can count them on one-hand, the rest are NON-ACTORS and its very obvious and really lets the film down.

Now this is a truthful review that breaks down the film in all its areas. The writing is amateurish and not interesting enough to hold my attention, furthermore the dialogue is very poor and even cringy. The whole UNORIGINAL idea of the crash-film-style of intertwining stories that come together left no real-impact whatsoever, I was so disappointed on the lack of emotion.

It was some-what boring and there was NO real drive for a story or any real objective. It's ok to give diverse people opportunities but let's make sure that they are qualified. What people need to know is this was more an experiment done by Screen Australia to tick some diversity boxes. I do wish everyone involved the very best, but my family and were so excited to sit down and watch this on ABC IVIEW and being originally from west Sydney and being from a immigrant background, we felt greatly disappointed at the stories that were chosen. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME.

Also it's ok to have cliche's and it's ok to have stereotypes but just make sure they ring-true to life and they are handled with intelligence and grace and that they do not become caricatures.

Such a good intertwined tale of the human condition!

I loved this! As humans; we all have a story. And this beautiful story emulated that perfectly. The interlock between the stories was spectacular too.

This story was human, reflective and emotional.

Whether established, or establishing; in a country - first, second, or third, generation (especially in Australia) this movie reiterated that we all feel, we all dream; and want to set our souls free; we want to belong.

This movie was just beautiful in that regard. I laughed and cried and wanted to delve deeper.

----in order to submit this review (someone deemed six hundred characters as worthy!) I must add this additional text --

Powerful and moving

HERE OUT WEST is a heart-wrenching tv drama movie that will have you on the edge of your seat. The story follows a grandmother who, desperate to save her sick grandson, kidnaps him from the hospital. This sets off a series of events that leads to the intersection of several strangers as the story unfolds. The movie is a series of eight separate, but interrelated, stories directed by different directors tied seamlessly together into a coherent story as it explores themes of love, joy, acceptance, despair, family, and grief.

The cast did an amazing job of bringing the diverse characters to life. The movie was expertly shot and edited, with beautiful cinematography throughout. The music was also perfect for the film, adding to the emotional impact. Pacing is key in a movie like this, and HERE OUT WEST never let up the tension for a moment.

HERE OUT WEST portrays its characters in a manner that avoids the typical cliches and stereotypes of Australian peoples and cultures. It's fresh, believable, and entertaining. The result is a powerful, moving film that is sure to stay with you long after you've seen it.
