Editorial Reviews

A hotshot restaurant owner at Sydney's chic Bondi Beach struggles to keep his life from falling apart in the intense and stunningly directed BURNING MAN. In a tour de force performance, Matthew Goode (Match Point, Brideshead Revisited) stars as Tom Keaton, a hunky chef who meets and marries the beautiful Sarah (Bojana Novakovic, Edge of Darkness, Drag Me to Hell) and soon becomes a proud father. But when tragedy strikes, Tom is unable to cope and turns to a succession of sexual encounters with an array of women while neglecting his family and losing his grip at work. Co-starring Rachel Griffiths (Six Feet Under), BURNING MAN ultimately paints a poignant portrait of a young man confronting loss and searching for the possibility of redemption.

When I sat down to view the Australian drama "Burning Man," I had no idea what to expect. I like both Matthew Goode and Rachel Griffiths, but I had never heard of the movie itself. I'm certainly not prone to unnecessary hyperbole (no comments like "greatest movie ever") but, truthfully, this film blew me away. A complete surprise, "Burning Man" may be one of the biggest sleepers of the year and I wonder why it hasn't received more notice stateside. It boasts a career best performance by Matthew Goode. A great character actor, Goode here showcases a fiery passion and raw energy that should be gaining him award attention. He's that good! The movie is structured in a series of fragments that cut back and forth through time. You really do have to pay attention as you try to piece together the narrative timeline. But as the heart of the story starts to come into focus, its poignancy and power really start to resonate. Writer/director Jonathan Teplitzky has assembled the fragments masterfully in a way that makes this a visceral experience as much as an emotional journey.

Goode plays a temperamental chef in a fashionable Sydney eatery. From the beginning, the screenplay almost slaps you with its aggression. Goode is unpleasant, volatile, desperate, and explosive. It's a big and showy role, and Goode devours every scene he's in. But as more and more of the story reveals itself, you start to see a certain shading--a reason and logic for his explosive personality. I won't provide any spoilers as the movie really should unravel at its own pace. Let's just say that Goode is a troubled soul that needs to piece his life and his psyche back together. And like a good puzzle, the movie stands as a metaphor for his internal struggle and his efforts to feel complete again.

Stunning film in every way. Confusing at first, but in the unraveling, you care about these people, the acting is amazing, the visuals are amazing, and if you have any propensity toward empathy, this film will kill you. One of the best I've seen in many years.

The jury in our house is still out on this one. We agreed it is a well made film and the cinematography is exquisite. We even, although in my case grudgingly, agreed that the narrative worked. You have to concentrate and I mean concentrate to put all the pieces of story, dialogue and image into context to get the whole story. In the end is the story worth the effort. I think so. The theme is not one often taken on by cinema as story-telling and it does not hold back on the emotional punches. So if you like your film viewing to be a challenge, a bit of eye to brain puzzle co-ordination then this could work well for you. Now for the down side. Why do we have to have every movie populated by beautiful (and I mean generally Anglo stereo types of blonde/buxom and well a bit shallow) putting bums on seats sex, tits and eye candy and smouldering blokes with chips on their shoulder and quippy put downs. I guess it sells. But it gets in the way of the meat of being engaged, made to think, emote and not just entertained. Secondly, trite shots shot beautifully just become naff when it is obvious they are unbelievable. In this the star for me was the two male leads-father and son and the interaction between them coming to terms and making sense on collision course of something neither had the skills to deal with. Yeah, I'm being obtuse because in no way do I want to give the plot away. So if the crack in this review resonates, have a watch and see what you think. One reviewer, not on this site, said they had to watch it three times to get it-a picture/pattern forming.

One of the best movies I saw all year. Although it was a bit confusing initially, I enjoyed it so much I saw it again the next night, and loved it even more. The acting was superb, the emotions were raw and real.

Overacted, over cooked melodrama. Cast of good actors with a story that is neither believable nor worth experiencing.

This film starts as a jagged mosaic, with brief scenes out of time and out of context. Only further into the film does the viewer derive the info needed to properly sequence the protagonist's actions, which profoundly changes our perceptions of this complex man. This directorial trick, of having us feel one way about these characters, but -- after further exposition -- change our minds is effective, but also rather off-putting. Eventually the film settles down into telling its story in a more straightforward manner, and the viewer's patience with the preceding jumbling is well rewarded, many times over. This is a beautiful film, with strong emotional performances from a great cast of actors. And, yes, a box of tissues might come in handy.

I watched this movie for one reason and one reason only -- Matthew Goode. He is such a talented young actor that I have made it a mission to watch every one of his recent films. I must admit that it was a bit of a slog watching "Burning Man" and yet I'm glad that I persevered to the end. The frenetic editing took some getting used to but in the end it came together. Goode's portrayal of this tormented man is quite remarkable and should have received a great deal more recognition. I may take the leap and re-watch it for that reason alone. Don't watch this film if you're into the cookie cutter mold. However, if you are up for a challenge, give it a go. Goode will not disappoint you.
