'Better Not to Die at All': The Battles of All Quiet on the Western Front. Wallin, Zoe 3345
A DIFFERENT STAGE: Film, Theatre and the Space Between: There is a long, rich history of interaction between the stage and the screen, with each discipline drawing upon the techniques of (and audiences' familiarity with) the other. Looking at various examples of cinematic representations of theatre and the theatrical --some more successful than others--TIM BYRNE argues that this mutual engagement can benefit both artforms. Byrne, Tim 3133
Against Authority: Rebellion and Religious Allegory in Cool Hand Luke. Godfrey, Nicholas 2803
ART ATTACK: Social Responsibility and Discomfort in The Square: In Ruben Ostlund's Palme d'Or-winning satire of the contemporary art world, thorny questions regarding individual responsibility, social behaviour and modern living are addressed and left to linger. As ANTHONY CAREW describes, the film encourages us to examine our fraught day-to-day attempts--and failures--to live up to our own ideals. Carew, Anthony 4429
BEATING HEARTS Compassion and Self-discovery in Call Me by Your Name: A bittersweet story of young love gained and lost, Luca Guadagnino's Call Me by Your Name also manages to dramatise the roles of sympathy and support networks in the process of coming of age--especially for those whose sexualities may not align with the norm. JOANNA DI MATTIA dives into this sumptuous film and examines its handling of growth, grief, relationships and risk. Di Mattia, Joanna 3041
CINEMA SCIENCE: The Dangerous Biology of Annihilation: A thought-provoking, high-concept sci-fi thriller, Alex Garlands film touches on real-world phenomena such as Hox genes, the Hayflick limit and the Mandelbrot set. While its science is complex and its subject matter can be intense, the film provides many excellent opportunities for discussions about biology in senior secondary classrooms, as DAVE CREWE describes. Crewe, Dave 3005
CREATIVE DEVICES: JOEL AARONS discusses essential classroom applications and how to use them. Aarons, Joel 2010
DARK MAGIC: The Mixed Messages of Beauty and the Beast: The recent live-action reimagining of the classic Disney animation combines catchy songs and impressive spectacle with some problematic ideas about love, class and gender. It's for this very reason, LOUISE LAVERY argues, that the film can serve as an excellent opportunity to help develop critical-analysis skills in upper primary and junior secondary classrooms. Lavery, Louise 2625
GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS: Mulan and Disney's Evolving Progressivism: Profitable and warmly received upon its release, Mulan is significant both for its powerful heroine, whose storyline eschews traditional romance, and for its authentic adaptation of Chinese folklore. MICHELLE LAW examines how the animated film's themes reflect a changing world--and a changing Disney--twenty years on. Law, Michelle 3283
LIVES IN TRANSIT: The Egalitarian Perspective of The Staging Post: A down-to-earth depiction of the establishment of a school in a small town, this new documentary examines the experiences of a community of Hazara refugees in Indonesia. As SUZIE GIBSON finds, the film successfully ensures that its subjects' voices remain paramount. Gibson, Suzie Letter to the editor 2470
Paul Thomas Anderson. Carew, Anthony 6543
