alinact Lyr Req: Ned Kelly (18) RE: Lyr Req: Ned Kelly 25 Sep 02

I think I'm agreeing with Taliesn? I don't know why Jaggers portrayal of Ned Kelly is so widely criticised, when it is his "amateurism" that makes his performance (to me) believable. In fact, I think a lot of Australian films from that era were so good because they gave a feeling that they weren't scripted (well - maybe that's a bit far fetched) but at least they weren't being acted; you felt like you were watching normal people, not film stars.

And I still think Jagger's rendition of "The Wild Colonial Boy" ranks way up there with the best versions of that song ever recorded.
