The jury in our house is still out on this one. We agreed it is a well made film and the cinematography is exquisite. We even, although in my case grudgingly, agreed that the narrative worked. You have to concentrate and I mean concentrate to put all the pieces of story, dialogue and image into context to get the whole story. In the end is the story worth the effort. I think so. The theme is not one often taken on by cinema as story-telling and it does not hold back on the emotional punches. So if you like your film viewing to be a challenge, a bit of eye to brain puzzle co-ordination then this could work well for you. Now for the down side. Why do we have to have every movie populated by beautiful (and I mean generally Anglo stereo types of blonde/buxom and well a bit shallow) putting bums on seats sex, tits and eye candy and smouldering blokes with chips on their shoulder and quippy put downs. I guess it sells. But it gets in the way of the meat of being engaged, made to think, emote and not just entertained. Secondly, trite shots shot beautifully just become naff when it is obvious they are unbelievable. In this the star for me was the two male leads-father and son and the interaction between them coming to terms and making sense on collision course of something neither had the skills to deal with. Yeah, I'm being obtuse because in no way do I want to give the plot away. So if the crack in this review resonates, have a watch and see what you think. One reviewer, not on this site, said they had to watch it three times to get it-a picture/pattern forming.

It's a shame that we get force fed all the same old films at Globes, Oscars and BAFTAs, yet films like this just go unnoticed. I've always loved Matthew Goode and loved the intelligence of this film, and how it was edited with all the pieces slotting together. Bit like his life going all over the place.
The way the characters all came together and the way they treated the theme of the story was so good, and the father/son relationship was wonderful. Just loved the little boy swearing in rage.

Love Matthew Goode so of course loved this. Well acted and though tricky to follow the fractured narrative came to an emotional but satisfying conclusion. Would recommend if you are a Goode fan.

Fragments Of A Life: A Powerhouse Performance By Matthew Goode Headlines This Wrenching Australian Drama 17 Nov. 2012
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
When I sat down to view the Australian drama "Burning Man," I had no idea what to expect. I like both Matthew Goode and Rachel Griffiths, but I had never heard of the movie itself. I'm certainly not prone to unnecessary hyperbole (no comments like "greatest movie ever") but, truthfully, this film blew me away. A complete surprise, "Burning Man" may be one of the biggest sleepers of the year and I wonder why it hasn't received more notice stateside. It boasts a career best performance by Matthew Goode. A great character actor, Goode here showcases a fiery passion and raw energy that should be gaining him award attention. He's that good! The movie is structured in a series of fragments that cut back and forth through time. You really do have to pay attention as you try to piece together the narrative timeline. But as the heart of the story starts to come into focus, its poignancy and power really start to resonate. Writer/director Jonathan Teplitzky has assembled the fragments masterfully in a way that makes this a visceral experience as much as an emotional journey.

Goode plays a temperamental chef in a fashionable Sydney eatery. From the beginning, the screenplay almost slaps you with its aggression. Goode is unpleasant, volatile, desperate, and explosive. It's a big and showy role, and Goode devours every scene he's in. But as more and more of the story reveals itself, you start to see a certain shading--a reason and logic for his explosive personality. I won't provide any spoilers as the movie really should unravel at its own pace. Let's just say that Goode is a troubled soul that needs to piece his life and his psyche back together. And like a good puzzle, the movie stands as a metaphor for his internal struggle and his efforts to feel complete again. The further we progress, the more stripped down Goode's performance gets. And as his naked vulnerability emerges, you'll really root for this wreck of a man to embrace the possibility of a new future.

I know that some people might loathe the narrative scramble. If you require things entirely linear or spelled out, "Burning Man" might not be the movie for you. But instead of feeling like a director's trick, the fragmented storytelling is an integral part of demonstrating the chaos and mix of emotions that define its leading man. Goode is front and center in every scene and he is up to the challenge. "Burning Man" is an intense experience that has lingered with me since watching the movie. An easy recommendation for serious minded viewers, I loved this movie. It has the ability to shock and disturb you, but also to really get under your skin as a tender and powerful love story. Teplitzky's "Burning Man" may easily be one of my favorite films of the year, made all the more surprising in that I had no such expectations when I sat down to watch it. KGHarris, 11/12.

Stunning 29 July 2012
By Sadie Thorndike - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Stunning film in every way. Confusing at first, but in the unraveling, you care about these people, the acting is amazing, the visuals are amazing, and if you have any propensity toward empathy, this film will kill you. One of the best I've seen in many years.

A bit less reliance on cinematography and more grunt to story line would have made this a classic 26 April 2013

Excellent Movie 9 Dec. 2012
By Kyra Sposato - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
One of the best movies I saw all year. Although it was a bit confusing initially, I enjoyed it so much I saw it again the next night, and loved it even more. The acting was superb, the emotions were raw and real.

Overcooked in every way 7 April 2015
By paxhungaria - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Overacted, over cooked melodrama. Cast of good actors with a story that is neither believable nor worth experiencing.
