There are many unexplained phenomena. Some of them just seem to be, others happen in reality... Sydney lawyer, David Burton is in the world of strange visions, when trying to deal with the matter of ritual murder. Will he be able to solve the mystery, while in the power of the sinister magic spell?
Review: And a sound of thunder And thunder boomed. And the clouds will not. Nature invades measured people's lives in the blast pouring rain, bombarding the city, which does not remember history. The house of the main character, as a metaphor of everyday reality, also bursting at the seams. Yanking him, as if he were on stilts. Breaking the door, shattering the glass, under the pressure of the vortex branch of the tree burst into the room like a monster from a horror movie. From the second floor hlyischet water, flash wiring, crush ceiling No, none of this really long time to run, where eyes look!
'The last wave' film by Peter Weir on a collision. The clash of civilizations and cultures (the descendants of the Anglo-Saxon colonialism with the Australian aborigines), the clash of human materialist, with hidden or unknown, the clash of consciousness and unconscious. A typical starched collar, lawyer, David Barton (Chamberlain), it takes up the case of the natives, discovers in himself, something inexplicable. In dreams and in reality come to him different visions of natural disasters, apokaliptichekaya wave, flooding her city, strange dim silhouette near the house, swarms of frogs, etc. Communication with aboriginal way to know your true supernatural essence, hidden under the education, the development of a 'white' cultural environment.
In spite of the fact that the new internal phenomena afraid of the hero, in it under their influence still occurs cognitive dissonance. And he is far more dangerous. The rational picture of the world falls on the eyes. The person falling apart. In this context, it is especially representative dialogue lawyer with his stepfather, the priest, who, as is implied, personal preaching strongly fought against heresy, including the philosophical and religious beliefs of the local aboriginal people. Accordingly, at some time drowned out by the prophetic abilities Burton. Hero disappointed in yourself, the stepfather, in the modern world. Mankind had forgotten the secret knowledge of their ancestors, only the most primitive cultures keep this memory. The character of Chamberlain, despite the fear, inevitably headlong is immersed in a sacred subject. The vision of the future cataclysm become clearer, and the path to the knowledge of himself more clearly. At the same time, the foresight of the Apocalypse rationally afraid of a lawyer, forcing of fear for the fate of the family.
Ostrosotsialnaya theme of the film this, of course, the existence of aboriginal people with the descendants of the colonists. The Anglo-Saxons forcefully intrude and disrupt the order of poorly studied the world's indigenous inhabitants of the continent, from which they suffer, of course, more, though, and teaches sometimes white unpleasant surprises. On the sanctuaries of the autochthonous grow the modern city, their clans decrease in the number of eroded in the new environment. A sharp cultural assimilation leads to different consequences in one of the books of natives Weir deliberately shows a selection of photos with the inscription 'Fatal Impact'. I.e. 'the fatal influence of the' Western civilization on the root. Aborigine in their natural habitat at the pictures on the left with the words THEN opposed to its compatriot in a shirt, resting on the bare pavement beside a garbage can. The inscription on the second picture 'AND NOW'. The intervention and influence of the whites in the life of the black is clearly the Director didn't like.
Weir created in the movie the whole concept of philosophy, spiritual and moral concepts of the autochthonous. If this do not think, that it is so, it is all in fact. Values and customs of indigenous peoples in the movie are a mixture of the Director of many ideas, underlined by them from completely different sources records known to occultists, philosophers, historians, archaeologists, anthropologists, as well as their own experiences from the study of the remains of ancient civilizations in different parts of the world. In 'the Latest wave of' stated that 'for aboriginal there are two forms of time, two parallel tracks. One of them the day in which we live and work, and the other the invisible world of spirits, called 'sleep time', more real than reality itself. Everything that happens in a dream generates values, norms and morality in the society of the aborigines. Shamans maintain contact with the reality of sleep through dreams. Conduct rites with sacred objects'. Another the idea about some of the highly developed migrants from the East, who came to Australia whether the Pacific region, whether to South America for several thousands of years ago. David Burton quickly learns that, in the opinion of the natives, can be a time of their children, the so-called 'mulkurul'. His unusual visions are the result of its origin.
One cannot but agree as with many critics, and with the Uirom, acknowledged that the finale 'of the Last wave' was not a success. A blot on the canvas. In the end see whether the lack of imagination, whether the failure to decide on something specific, throwing from idea to idea. It certainly can be interpreted as just a dream (can be and otherwise) of the hero, in which he is to receive, at last, the knowledge that was looking for. However, the obtained quite impressive. Bright, spectacular revelations are not followed. Moreover, after the first viewing impression of the final remains somewhat blurry, hazy, unclear (although this is not always the lack of). Perhaps a limited budget and technical ability are not allowed to Uiru make more colourful the end, though, for example, a 'picture' of his previous still less than the budget of the film 'picnic at hanging rock' many critics recognized as one of the most exemplary. Yes, and the operator worked the same Russell Boyd.
Nevertheless, it should be noted that before the final Peter skillfully immerses the viewer in the environment at first, barely visible, but steadily approaching universal nightmare. It is worth mentioning some of the techniques are: infernal image of the sprawling streams of water, which to this day is often used in horror movies, or blurred human figure outside the window, memories Association with movies about aliens. The beginning of the sleep of the hero is not always possible to trace the Weir goes to him suddenly by sticking him with the reality, as for example, after the first meeting with David with Chris and Charlie. One of the most horrible according to the testimonies of a number of spectators scenes meeting Burton with Charlie in the house of the latter. Camera specifically takes the hero of the first General plan, but the extent of rise of voltage is getting closer to the big. At the peak moment we only see the eyes of Richard Chamberlain. Separately stands to note the work of Peter with sound. Sad melody of the main musical theme of the controversial changes to the chaotic sounds of national musical instruments of aboriginal Australia, it's reminiscent of the muffled hum of bees, the fearsome snarl of predatory animals. Undoubtedly, Weir one of the best masters of world cinema on the part of the create a mystical atmosphere.
