Baz Luhrmann's latest film Australia just opened in theaters. One of the stars, David Gulpilil, is an Aborigine actor who has been a mainstay of Australian cinema since the 1970s. If Luhrmann's brand of epic romance isn't your cup of tea, may we suggest some other top-notch films from down under that all feature Gulpilil:
Ten Canoes
The Proposition
The Tracker
Rabbit-Proof Fence
The Last Wave
Walkabout

Milk opens on Friday the 12th, and Vermont Freedom to Marry and RU12 will be in attendance at the the 6:30 premiere at Cinema 9: so I highly suggest you rent the documentary Times of Harvey Milk beforehand (if you can get your paws on it--our copy is in deserved high demand.)

I know the six days between each blog post are long for you (cuz they're certainly long and lonely for me), so here's a heads up on another great local movie blog: Millie at the Pictures.

adrienne - thanks so much the head's up holler on your entry - major merci! (and for passing your sister's email along, much appreciated!) Our holiday was also really short on dysfunction and long on pleasantness, good for the two of us! I'm doing really well, getting busy with retail wonderland. You're preparing for grad school, right? How is that going? Let's chat more - Seth has my email. I look forward to reading more of your entries! PS love the paw . . . and The Proposition, everyone should see that movie.

That millie know's her stuff. Considering what Luhrmann has done for the musical, Shakespeare and ballroom dancing - i can't wait to see what he does with the classic Epic-adventure genre.
