It plays like a daily comic strip or a series of silent-era one-reelers, with Charlie sometimes joined by his buddy Black Pete (producer Peter Djigirr) or antagonized by clueless white policeman Luke (Luke Ford). What it adds up to is a broadly drawn, but thoughtful, tragicomic vision of impoverished indigenous life, with allusions to Gulpilil’s background as a dancer and his public struggles with alcoholism.

An obligatory feel creeps into Charlie’s successive travails, as if Mr. De Heer is putting the character through his paces and surrounding him with a dutifully representative spectrum of sympathetic-to-condescending whites. The simplistic piano score doesn’t help. But Mr. de Heer’s relentless treatment may well suit the background history of Western land appropriation, which isn’t necessarily one of elegance or subtlety.

Much of Charlie’s Country proceeds in this observational mode, exercising the transformative power of Gulpilil’s face. Whether laughing, crying, mumbling to himself, or projecting a valiant stoicism, Gulpilil — beneath a white beard and a blanket of shaggy hair — commands the screen in close-ups liable to run for minutes at a time.
