Today’s movie is Gallipoli directed by Peter Weir.
In classic Movie Club fashion, Anna liked this movie and Casey didn’t. Even though Gallipoli does manage to capture the mundane everyday experience of soldiers and the brutality of war, it often undercuts its own emotional impact with odd music choices and direction that sometimes misses the mark.
Next week we will be hosting a Movie Club LIVESTREAM Watch Party on Twitch! We’ll make a new post soon with more details.
Until then, we’d love to hear your thoughts on Gallipoli!
