Dr Plonk


Australia 2007, 85 minutes, B/W
Dir. Rolf De Heer
Genres: Comedy / Silent Cinema

Topics: Timewarp.


Aroview: Rolf de Heer's lively tribute to the silent era succeeds as an absurdist comedy of pulpy time travel antics: after predicting the end of the world in 2008, the film's titular mad scientist must leap 100 years into the future to forewarn Australia's PM. More of a literal throwback than the films of Guy Maddin, faithfully recreated using a hand-cranked camera.
