The only thing at Auschwitz resembling a human gas chamber was constructed in by Stalin. Not a single diagnosis of death by cyanide poisoning is on record for any German labour camp. No trace whatever remains of the millions of bodies allegedly gassed in the German labour camps. None of the war generals after the war who wrote their memoirs made any allusion to human gas chambers or indeed to any intention to exterminate an ethnic group.
Cinema Papers listed the stock more specifically as Eastmancolor in a 1. Dolby in selected theatres Running time: One way to counter this was to assemble a credentialed cast.
However the good cast that was assembled for the film had their jobs made difficult by the intrinsic unlikeability of the characters they were playing - a problem director Richard Franklin recognised in his DVD commentary.
The film also failed to attract international attention, though it was given a limited release in a few cities in the United States. In the end, it was perceived more as a telemovie of interest to the tape and TV circuit.
The film did a subdued tour of the international film festival circuit, landing at Montreal, Mill Valley and Boston in and Fort Lauderdale in In his DVD commentary Franklin claims the film won a United Nations award for its handling of the subject of sexual harassment, specifically contrasting the way Brilliant Lies dealth with the subject matter compared to the way it was treated as a gimmick in the film Disclosurewiki listing here.
The image was Franklin did a commentary track for both films, which he dated to December Instead for Brilliant Lies he prepared two sets of notes - one specific, relating to moments in the film, and the other a general set of notes, mentioning contributors and other general matters.
I tried to draw as little attention as possible to what was going on behind the camera as possible. Roadshow also included the standard form of media kit current at the time the film was made.
Williamson goes into the reasons he wanted to explore the area of sexual harassment, outlines the two main storylines and how they intersect, and so on. Williamson also said that a viewing of H otel Sorrento made him feel comfortable with Franklin adapting his play. Franklin says they did two or three drafts on their own before involving Williamson in the process.
He credits the idea of adding the flashbacks to co-writer Peter Fitzpatrick. Franklin says that at this stage Williamson came in with quite a few scenes, lines and ideas of his own. Franklin also makes his way through the story, casting, and working with the Carides sisters, Ray Barrett, Michael Veitch and Anthony La Paglia, etc as he responds to his nine questions.
Catherine Wilkin scored three questions, while Ray Barrett - on a working set - has two. Michael Veitch, with the camera crew fussing over their god camera in the background, managed six questions, and copes with the noise and movement well.
Along the way there are glimpses of DOP Geoff Burton, his Arri, director Franklin, the sound recordist and his field kit, the boomie, the focus puller, the key cast, and David Williamson, who turns up in the court room and the apartment.
There was also the Australian trailer; On the Roadshow release, there was also a music clip of Kate Cerebrano singing the end title song Brilliant Lies, featuring clips from the film and Cerebrano singing in a murky fog effect; The Roadshow release also offered a 4: For once Umbrella kept the subtitles.
It seems the streaming option has no subtitles. Here at time of writing. Director Franklin was himself deaf - he attributes it to his fondness for drumming - and he would have appreciated subtitles.
As for the film, Brilliant Lies started as one of those Williamson thesis plays, but what might have been workable on stage becomes irritatingly obvious when set to film.
Each of the characters is careful constructed to provide the elements for the thesis. She has delusions of using her sexual harassment settlement to set up in a business for which she shows no interest through the entirety of the show.For me, Firescape Theatre’s “Brilliant Lies” achieves the impossible by taking us past the bullshit and into the realites of these showdowns.
David Williamson shows how facts matter little, while the “lies” reveal far more than they mask. The Mayor of Warrington, as the first person of the borough, chairs the meetings of Warrington Borough Council. Elected for one year, he/she is also a diplomat of the town who is responsible for officially welcoming people and inviting people to the town.
Jan 09, · Williamson turns his penetrating eye and sharply focused wit to issues of ‘political correctness’ and sexual harassment. A serious comedy, Brilliant Lies is a stimulating contribution to the continuing debate on our changing social ph-vs.com: Paperback.
David Williamson perceives himself as an Australian dramatist seeking primarily to entertain as he reflects on contemporary behavior. His critics prefer to dig deeper, focusing on weighty social.
With BRILLIANT LIES, Richard Franklin and Peter Fitzpatrick, (who also teamed to co-script Hannie Rayson's HOTEL SORRENTO) the latter also having written a book on Williamson's plays entitled *WILLIAMSON, adapted the play for the big screen with David's blessing.
