X-Press 12

I’m very glad to say I was sent another screener of a film to review for X-Press Magazine. Border Politics is a new Australian documentary about the plight of refugees and the changing attitudes towards them in the West. With such a divisive and complex issue you can’t fault the filmmakers for ambition but sadly I did not really find a lot to recommend here. You can read my full review at As always please feel free to like or comment if you can on the site.

X-Press Magazine was established in 1985 and at one point was Australia’s highest circulating free weekly entertainment publication with over 40,000 copies reaching 1,000 outlets every week.  On the 24th May, 2016 Issue 1527 (the last one in print) hit stands. Like many publications of its ilk X-Press Magazine is now foremost an online magazine engaged globally and making the most of the possibilities that new digital technology offers. It’s roots though are tied to its home city, love of local artists and productions and music which it supports wholeheartedly. Perth a capital city most isolated from all the other capitals is continuing to grow and develop culturally and artistically with its own identity and talent. X-Press has always been there to capture this growth and will continue to do so.

  1. An interesting review, Lloyd. There have been so many excellent comprehensive films made about this issue, and I don’t think we need another one-sided argument.
    Best wishes, Pete.
