The Press Reviews

  • Moving, confronting and yet, a distinct pleasure to watch, the fine Australian-made documentary Working Class Boy examines two disarmingly vivid subjects for the price of one. Full Review

  • Lots about the man, little about the band, but this film about Barnesy’s troubled life has a humanistic message at its core. Full Review
