Holy Smoke


Australia 1999, 114 minutes
Dir. Jane Campion
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Drama / Girl-centric

Topics: Arthouse.


Aroview: An adventurous attempt to fuse psychological thriller, broad caricature and Eastern spirituality has guru-besotted Kate Winslet being lured from India by her loopy Australian family then handed over to cult-deprogrammer Harvey Keitel. Closest to SWEETIE out of Campion's other films, this has a similarly strong visual component that loosely binds the material, however most will find the subject-matter's potential unfulfilled, with its tone of 'serious' self-satire going largely awry.
