    Last Wave stretches--confuses--mystifies--TRANSFORMS. Its paradigm is particularly relevant in these Days of Ecocrisis/Ecocide. Hopis and others warn that the long-prophesied Days of Purification are upon us. Some sources predict that May 2003 is a time of cataclysmic global transformations, in the spirit of The Last Wave...leading to the Fifth World.

    A genuinely bone-chilling movie that explores the areas of division and convergence between modern and primitive man, between rationalism and myth. As the story quietly progresses we feel as though having imperceptively crept into nightmare territory.

  1. Weir had a truly magical touch in early films like this 1977 masterpiece, which offers a transfixing excursion into the "dream time" of Australian myth.

    Weir does manage to deliver the goods.
  3. A powerful, yet subtle, picture from Australian director Peter Weir, who has demonstrated quite a flair for mystical themes.
