Furious scribbling in the dark here because this was theoretically the only ever screening the public will ever get to see of this film, the 3rd masterpiece in 3 years by Tim Hamilton. Confident, self-aware, introspective but genius, comedic and engaging I am seriously in awe of this man's talent every year he enters the competition. So so sorry to hear about the dq.
Moving away from the meta make a film in 48 hours structure to a loving ode to his mother, DQ Tim went wild into the bush, far away from even the wop-wops and allowed the audience to share in his journey. The drone shots were simply staggering and gave the film a sense of scope that was far more than 1 man trying to make it back to civilization for mother's day after having 1 corona or 12 too many the night before. As the dire situation sunk in the required puddle this year was put to fantastic use to allow Tim/Tim to discuss himself and his mum in a way that was raw but charming and wholly unique; a message of love for yourself and your family that simply made my day. The river and plunge was glorious too. Thank you!
