Description

In this thoughtful and thought-provoking essay, Andrew Frost contextualises the major thematic concerns of Rowan Woods' film The Boys into the broader context of social anxieties about violence, crime and morality. He chronicles his own personal journey with the film and its makers from art school to the underground Super 8 filmmaking scene of Sydney in the mid-1980s, and the early short films of Rowan Woods. Frost discovers new aspects of The Boys even today and wonders if its stinging moral message has been heard among the clamour of everyday suburban life.
