Debaser Film

Quigley Down Under

I do find it to be a pretty interesting setting for a Western, I’ll give it that. It’s not a bad movie, and I did enjoy watching most of it, although it did feel long and I found myself checking the time a few times. I also like the fact that the character Selleck plays is basically a sniper, as it changes up things a bit. Selleck never fully feels like he’s able to put on a proper Old West accent though, but I did really like Laura San Giacomo, she’s great. One thing that did bother me is the way the Aborigines are presented, especially the nudity, as it gives off the uncomfortable thought of why is it OK to portray that kind of nudity (specifically women’s breasts) in a film like this, as opposed to non-Aborigines characters. One of those unfortunate sign of the times.
