A reworking of the 1892 Henry Lawson short story, this film is a subversive survival story.
The message of Eva Orner’s new documentary is spot on, the logic of its argument faultless. But it tells us things more than it makes us feel things, and this is seldom beneficial in the medium.
There are many nods to Mesopotamian myth in Marvel’s Eternals. The character of Gilgamesh is the first ancient Near Eastern hero with a leading role in a Marvel film.

The sequel to 2018’s Occupation, this new alien invasion film is overly ambitious, both incomprehensible and shrill.
