Reactions to Wakolda

Wakolda, our second film of the season, was well received by members. It scored 86 per cent on our appreciation index. Comments included: “A sense of discomfort through the whole film. A strange place and a strange time”; “Outrageous and fantastic. A great film for a film soc”; “Really powerful. Real menace and powerful acting”; and “atmospheric and gripping”.

Oddity received one of the best appreciation scores yet for a student film: 78 per cent. Some comments: “Best student film I’ve seen here”; “Fascinating and very astute observation. Very moving”; “Well executed and good story”. It was not universally praised however: “Poor taste” and “What was this film trying to achieve apart from badly executed clichés?”
