Head On is an amazing film. Its beauty and treasures lie in not judging
journey taken in the film but opening up to the experiences of a young man
lost and hidden. Its not a bright, gay film but rather a fiery drama
doesn't offer answers but depicts a painful truth which many would prefer
disregard. This is a film about the loss of hope in the jaded
It is very much a local film (shot in Melbourne) and an Australian film,
I think it offers up wider and more general issues.
Few films capture the mood of the 1990s quite like Head On. It is a film
embedded with characterisitics which intuitively identify the strangely
blank decade that edged up to the 21st century. If the eighties was -
though simplistically - regarded as the decade of high paced materialism.
The 90s can be seen as a time of conservatism and cautiousness - again
simplistically - which could be regarded as the tired decade. A time
with a feeling that everything had already been done. Grunge embodied
as did the increasing popularity of pastiche and remakes such as the
television shows were more and more the source for films. It was a time
where even moreso than in previous decades - the answers and ideas were
in ready-made forms. Reused, resurrected and exploited. Sarcasm and
cynicism became law. Pettiness became more and more common. Many of us
just tired out.
Ari, the central character in Head On played with brilliant vibrant
vividness by Alex Dimitriades, is the embodiment of this tired feeling.
reacts to the world by going to extremes in an attempt to register some
feeling, a momentary intensity. Since there is nothing new to be found, he
embraces fleeting bursts of passion and uses anything that helps him
the exhausted sensation whether through drugs or sex, people or music.
Anything that he can do to keep himself isolated and inside his own
individual mind, he races toward. Head On. He's gay but not proud. He's
Greek-Australian but not interested. He's young but may as well be old.
History is an excuse to crap on and foster negativity. Ari can't
contemplate love because he's lost between the cracks of a society he
doesn't care for and doesn't want to contribute to maintaining. He
trust but he yearns, somewhere deeply, for some sense of security or
The film follows his search for reason in the chaos of his life in a world
of silences and charades. But for Ari, there can be no reason. He feels
doomed. Sensation is his only food, the only way to quench an
indiscriminate, blind thirst.
Dimitriades puts his body and soul into the role of Ari. Its the
of commitment and intense passion for the role. He doesn't flinch at the
frontal nudity or gay sex scenes as other actors might have and hence
brings to the role an authenticity which is the spine of the film. But
supporting cast are equally well cast and powerful. Paul Capsis radiates
every scene as Toula/Johnny, Ari's gender-bending cousin. Julian Garner
perfectly contrast as the one person who loves Ari enough to try and show
him hope rather than dismissal. In fact, the script ensures even the
smallest roles are provided with weight through the powerful and serious
screenplay. The book from which this film was born - Loaded by Christos
Tsiolka- is an excellent expansion of the films vision.
The soundtrack is split between roaring alt-rock and techno-pop with some
interesting surprises. The whole film comes together with a precision and
ease which never feels unnatural or artificial. This is a raw but tight
film. It deals with issues intelligently and strongly without judgement or
fear. The loss of hope shown here is left to be dealt with in our own
lives, and with the people we meet. I think the film provides a welcome
opportunity to reflect on the destructiveness of notions like identity
truth in a world which increasingly blurs examples that aren't suitable or
