FILM REVIEW -- EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS
Ethnic authenicity left behind
Director Ridley Scott and Sigourney Weaver on the set of Exodus.
The big screen
To say something is "bigger than Ben
Hur" indicates it is epic in scale.
Ridley Scott s Exodus: Gods and
Kings rekindles the monumental
Hollywood Biblical epic comparable
in breadth to Cecil B. De Mille s The
The Exodus story is familiar.
Moses, a Jew, is raised by the
Egyptian king Seti alongside his
biological son Rhamses. Moses, after
receiving guidance from God, leads
his people to freedom.
Moses leaves his family, accepts
his role as a freedom fighter and
battles Rhamses, who believes he is a
god, in his pursuit of freedom for
Jewish slaves and their claim to the
Moses and Rhamses endure the
plagues of Egypt, from frogs and
locusts to rivers that run blood. Scott
uses computer graphics spectacularly
to show these contagions.
The characters are boiled down to
flimsy stereotypes that act as the glue
for the action sequences.
Exodus features a strange cross-
section of Egyptian queens who speak
with harsh American accents,
Australian-speaking Egyptian kings
with affected Egyptian dialects who
are smothered in fake tans to create
the appearance of genuine Egyptians
and a hero, Moses, who sounds like
Christian Bale in his Batman persona.
The physical manifestation of God
as a Cockney-speaking British youth
is another odd aspect of Exodus.
Exodus will appeal to people who
enjoy Biblical epics funnelled
through a Hollywood Anglo-centric
filter. Cinema audiences who prefer
ethnic authenticity will be annoyed, if
not appalled, by the choices made by
Exodus is definitely epic in scope,
although considering the computing
firepower available to Scott, it doesn t
surpass the spectacular effects created
in the pre-computer generated
imagery era of Ben Hur.
It may not be bigger than Ben Hur
but Exodus nonetheless packs a visual
punch interspersed with plodding
scenes and dialogue.
The bearable perpetuity of light
Two of James Turrell's works, After Green and Sight
Unseen, form part of his retrospective exhibition,
which runs until June 8.
The National Gallery of Australia s
summer blockbuster exhibition James
Turrell: A Retrospective has begun.
The Canberra exhibition follows
sold-out seasons in 2013 at the Los
Angeles County Museum of Art, the
Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and
the Guggenheim in New York.

art from light.
His works play on perception and
emotion and prompt viewers to
question the nature of light and its
Many of the art works require
solitude and time for the eyes to
adjust. The Perpetual Cell,an
immersion installation, can only
accommodate one viewer at a time
and a premium
ticket is required

chance to explore
like you ve never
