Celluloid Anzacs —The Great War Anzac Debate through Australian Cinema

By Daniel Reynaud

Australian cinema has effectively popularised the Anzac legend. Just how this has been so is explored in this lucid, clear-eyed study. Here's a taste: "While European art developed a dominant myth of the horror and meaninglessness of the war," and some Australian writers interrogated the Anzac myth, "Australia's many war films are almost entirely devoid of irony."
