— Review of Brazen Hussies Catherine Dwyer , 2020 single work film/TV

'Catherine Dwyer’s excellent documentary, Brazen Hussies, is a timely reminder as to how quickly attitudes towards women, not just in Australia but in many parts of the western world, changed between 1965 and 1975. The rise of feminism is depicted both via an exemplary use of archive footage, much of it revelatory, and also by means of interviews with many of the women who, 50 years ago, were at the forefront of women’s liberation and who, it must be said, have aged with distinction and grace.'  (Introduction)

— Appears in: The Weekend Australian , 7 November 2020; (p. 13)

— Review of A Lion Returns Serhat Caradee , Les Chantery , 2017 single work film/TV

'Both structurally and thematically A Lion Returns is one of the boldest and most inventive Australian films seen in recent years. It’s a fine achievement for Serhat Caradee whose first feature, the excellent Cedar Boys, won the Audience Award at the 2009 Sydney Film Festival.' (Introduction)

1 Stalwarts Dish Out the Laughs David Stratton , 2020 single work review
— Appears in: The Weekend Australian , 24 October 2020; (p. 13)

— Review of Never Too Late Luke Preston , 2019 single work film/TV

'Never Too Late is an Australian comedy feature film. That’s not necessarily a recommendation in itself; too many locally made comedies have been painfully unfunny. But the good news is this one works rather well, thanks to several splendid performances from a cast of older actors.' (Introduction)

1 Vivid Underworld Portrait David Stratton , 2020 single work review
— Appears in: The Weekend Australian , 10 October 2020; (p. 13)

— Review of Measure for Measure Damian Hill , Paul Ireland , 2018 single work film/TV

'Five years ago Paul Ireland directed and Damian Hill wrote and starred in Pawno, a gripping film set in the Melbourne inner-city suburb of Prahran. Hill died suddenly in 2018 while working on the pair’s second collaboration, Measure for Measure, and the film is dedicated to him. As the title suggests, the screenplay is inspired by William Shakespeare.' (Introduction)
