  1. 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 soundtrack ruins most everything else left to enjoy.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  13. 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

  14. 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.

    the closest i've been to being hypnotized

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

    A summer fever dream that lingers and is lost in the howling breeze. A classic.

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

    Weak second half notwithstanding, its legendary status as a mood piece par excellence is deserved and its influence can't be denied. In the first hour Weir conjures such a captivating dreamscape of suggestive motifs - a cornucopia of resonances around adolescent sexuality, repression, class, male gaze, colonialism, abuse, nature, mortality and more.

  18. Rui Oliveira's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

    First time I saw this film. A masterpiece of suspense, drama and visual poetry. Subtle, not obvious, the director plays well the elements of suspense and the mystery surrounding what happened to those girls remains unanswered. The effects of that event on the rest of the characters are masterfully played.
