Looking Back


Tonight we had an opportunity to see an Australian film from 1966.  It was somewhat of a revelation to see the film, “They’re a Weird Mob” which was released 50 years ago.

Here is the Wikipedia entry about it.  Take a look.  It is certainly like nothing I have seen before and had a very predictable plot, if you could call it that.


However, it was funny, sad and frustrating as well as rather topical in the way that Australians deal with large-scale immigration.  While we generally think that we have progressed as a society in the last 50 years, I felt that we have actually regressed in some ways.
