Writer/Director Geoffry Wright came under attack by Leftist critics for not hitting everyone over the head, like American History X, with an anti-racist civics lesson - His position comes across as neutral. Indeed, one can almost sympathize with the group as they are convinced Australia's future depends on its racial and cultural purity.
Without a doubt, this movie is worth owning.
The DVD's bonus feature's were so myriad that it took 2 discs to hold them all. Included is a talking track by Geoffrey Wright, in which he discusses about the filming of ROMPER STOMPER and interesting tid-bits about particular scenes as they appear on screen. Also included on the first disc is a music track where the nazi punk rock songs, excellently composed by Clifford White, can be heard alone.Read more ›
This "Special Edition" DVD advertises on it's back cover a pair of documentaries...one about Skinheads and the other (it would seem) regarding the making of the film. On the surface this sounds like a great deal - something unexpected for such a small film. But after you've cracked the case - watched the feature you bought it for - you'll come to find out that the two "documetaries" that are listed to be on Disc 2 are actually interview topics with director Geoffery Wright. No documentaries. No lie.
Well, that's unless you're talking about Fox, it's producer.
It's sad when a sale closing device, like the DVD special feature is either abused or badly mishandled. While the movie is well-worth the price of the disc, it is a letdown when the cool stuff you've been looking forward to actually turns out to be bogus.
The double DVD features the movie on disc 1 with a commentary track by director Wright. Disc 2 is the "Extras" disc and it's a mixed bag... first off, the DVD touts a "Documentary called 'Skinheads - Reality and Fiction'" --- There is no such "documentary" on this DVD. It's just a 10 minute segment of director Wright discussing skinhead culture, etc. to an interviewer -- that's it! Amazingly DECEPTIVE advertising on Fox's part, I must say. There are also other Wright interview segments labeled subjects such as "Making the movie" which is also listed on the DVD case to make it seem as if it's a featurette --- but NOPE, it's just more talking by Wright as he sits there for 30 minutes. Why not just listen to the commentary track instead???Read more ›
