So, saw Ned Kelly this evening, which might as well be called Joe Byrne Gets Some Play. It's all about the Gay, which is probably the contact high from having a member of the Fellowship in the midst. Aaron Sherrit and Joe Byrne's angsty star-crossed angst, and Dan Kelly and Steve Hart's tragical puppylove, and Joe Byrne's extreme pimp-daddy ways, and Bernard Fanning in a cameo that caused me to die laughing from the sheer dork factor, and Naomi Watts reinforcing my suspiscions that she's actually a clone of Nicole Kidman (Not A Bad Thing), and there's a monkey! And The Great Grate Orlando! And...and...Joe Byrne getting some play. That's essentially all the movie was about. There might have been bushrangers, too.
There's a special hell for people who slash members of the Kelly Gang. Yep. It's next door the the Special Hell I'm already on the waiting list for, so yay! Short commute!
