Gallipoli
Rated
The story of a famous military debacle; the British Imperial Army's futile expedition against Turkish emplacements in the Dardanelles in 1915 -- in which a chauvinistic Australian contingent is shunted into a bloody cul-de-sac,an imbecilically botched battle where they will charge to certain death unless a desperate courier can get the orders reversed. The focus is on a prototypical "male bonding" love story between two young Aussies; Weir charges his images with tension and a physical beauty that keeps veering toward paranoia. The antiwar statement - the carnage at Gallipoli, the carnage of all wars -- shakes you, but not quite as much as the deeper mystery behind it: the sadistic massacre of the young and brave, the death of love.
