5.0 out of 5 stars Am rather excited about this one! 11 May 2012
By Tim Kidner TOP 500 REVIEWER
I've now watched all the films in this 12 disc set - I've reviewed most of them individually and separately under their own titles. As for the boxed set itself, here is my original review:

.....I wanted to write something as no-one else has and I indeed would have found something useful when I ordered blind.

Firstly, the set (from the supplier my order came from) came directly from Australia, but there were no customs dues etc. It says that all 12 discs are region 0, meaning 'region-free' and I had no trouble playing Picnic At....on my region 2 only machine. There's an Australian "MA 15+" certificate on the outer box, to cover some of the more adult orientated films.

The set comes in three DVD cases with 4 discs in each. Without checking them all individually, they don't seem to run in themes or by director, but maybe chronologically. However, the info on the reverse of the cases have excellent synopsis, certificate, duration and extras and Aussie film awards. The extras are varied but at best seem quite generous.

The actual movies cover a whole host of genres, from the period dramas of Peter Weir and Bruce Beresford, to knowing dramas such as Puberty Blues and crusty Aussie humour of The Adventures of Barry Mackenzie. The other directors featured are Fred Schepisi (The Devil's Playground), Carl Schultz, Ken Cameron and Michael Thornhill. I'd only seen two of the twelve (Picnic At....& Barry MacKenzie) and so am looking forward immensely to these fruits from down under.

What does seem great about this set is that it doesn't try and concentrate too much on films only loved by the critics and are a healthy cross-section - a true sample.
