A Kubrickian take on the Kangaroo Jack franchise
25 April 2018 | by zackkrennSee all my reviews

If we are to herald a film as "underrated" G'Day, U.S.A is certainly the prime example. A masterclass in animation, social commentary, and storytelling. The kind of film I'm jealous of; I wish I could make this. The creativity and emotion on display is palpable, you feel as if it is real, even if it is animated. A gorgeous experience and one of my favorite films.
