  1. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

    3-4.A very unusual take on the archetypal journey to the heart of creation. Unlike most abstract pieces that tackle the idea, this one uses poetry as an avenue to exploring it both visually and textually. I think it maybe does suffer from the dead end created by the impossibility of the mystery's resolution for the characters. But what it evokes from them is worth scrutinizing, unto itself.

  4. angeldromero's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

    This feels like some sort of miracle in a sense, the picture works in so many levels. It's remarkable in its aesthetic, characters and mystery elements. This feels like Twin Peaks before Twin Peaks.

  6. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

  7. Tadzio Bonaparte's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

    No use pretending that this film doesn't kick major ass.

  8. Adam GR's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

    Seminally Australian. A tightly-laced structure can dizzy one into an urge to veer off the beaten path. Sometimes we get too lost for our own good. Displacement trance.

  9. enkii__bilal's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

    2+ To weak and lazy for mystery, and music also doesn't agree with this kind of mystery, although movie is shoted in a beautiful way.

  10. THE APOLL0's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

    The subdued alienation of the new inhabitants among the ancient land they recently stole briefly sparks the tinderbox of sexual self-repressions that they can barely contain by displacing those anxieties by instilling them in others as a form of circular self justification that seemingly continues without end.

  11. redux's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

    Time to admit this is not very good. Hardly anything beyond the mysterious premise, which itself smacks of Neckermann exoticism. The orphan girl storyline (of sorts) is mawkish, and irrelevant to whatever is going on (or rather not) otherwise. And the 70's panpipe cheesy-listening spoils most everything else.

  12. Elena's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

    The story doesn't lose for one second its poetry and dream-like feel although it becomes eerier, Lynchian and captivating. The music is perfect, Gheorghe Zamfir's pan flute is ethereal and haunting.

  13. Francisco R.'s rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

    One should notice that the volcanic nature of Hanging Rock echoes with the fierce passion brimming inside the hearts of the young, nubile students that somehow managed to answer its call. Perhaps it is this passion -that awoke like melting lava and coalesced with its surroundings- the poetic key to understand this enchanting, magnificent and yet utterly tragic film.

    this final shot of the girls walking up into the rock will lasting in your memory forever. the ambience is stunning- from the noise and camera distortion, to their seemingly hypnotized pace and edith's scream, it's an incredibly haunting moment and is basically the crux of the whole film. i feel unsettled just thinking of it.

    School Excursions Suck: the movie.

  16. Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

    I've watched this years ago like maybe two or three times, liked how breathtaking & mysterious the film was. It was, however, hard to follow a little (currently got some mixed reviews today) so perhaps I do need to re-watch this seriously. Great opening sequence, by the way.

  17. Aardsy's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

  18. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

    Enchanting, so very enchanting. It could have been just a movie about missing girls but the way Weir did it, it’s so much more. It embraces the mystic, the mood, the tragedy. It’s a movie in which you land like in a big cushion you don’t want to leave. After the girls have gone missing, you miss the beginning of the film as well, but it’s this yearning that brings the viewer closer to the characters.

  19. Danielleo's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

    After finally watching this, I can clearly see how it’s influenced many films made after.

  20. FISCHER's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

    Un intemporel et pur chef-d'oeuvre australien, éthéré et fragile, d'une perfection extrême où l'intrusion d'un possible fantastique se love étroitement avec une pertinente approche des pulsions et troubles de l'adolescence féminine... www.cinefiches.com

  22. MisterColo93's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

  23. Luca Soldati's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

    Storia particolare ed esoterica con molti misteri irrisolti. Personaggi ben amalgamati e credibili nelle loro reazioni agli eventi mostrati, le quali risultano il fulcro dell'opera. Mistero sfruttato intelligentemente. Ritmo molto lento che aiuta nel creare un'atmosfera molto poetica. La regia dà un tono meraviglioso e coinvolgente alla trama. La fotografia crea delle sequenze molto affascinanti. Musiche meravigliose

  24. Jérémy Poirier's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

    Haunting, mesmerizing and mysterious are words that describes very well one of Peter Weir's best films. Without spoiling anything, it is the ambiguity of the whole story that makes this one really stands out. Plus, the cinematography and sound design/score are somehow really frightening. I will definitely give this film a re watch.
