Film Review - Swinging Safari


Writer/director Stephen Elliott made an industry splash with 1994’s “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.” It was an ABBA-fueled romp that wasn’t afraid of a little madness to inspire shock and hilarity, pushing successfully with some degree of visual anarchy. His follow-ups tried to replicate some portion of the “Priscilla” magic, but he often came up short (with efforts such as “Welcome to Woop Woop” and “Eye of the Beholder”). Elliott finally reclaims his lost mojo with “Swinging Safari,” which drips with mad Aussie energy, taking viewers back to the lawless age of the 1970s, where safety, fashion, and personal boundaries where all ignored in the name of fun. It’s a berserk snapshot of life lived on the edge by a collection of families in various states of distress, with Elliott developing ideal insanity to capture his memories of Australian freedoms and fears during a particularly freewheeling decade.
