Picnic at Hanging Rock alludes to giving its mystery an explanation in the very beginning. Strangely enough, it heads down that lane but never quite reaches the end – which is entirely the point. Peter Weir’s 1975 acclaimed Australian hit is rather an exploration of character and environment, reacting to the hinder of phenomenon, all the while subtly percolating themes of innocence and sexuality. It’s about the experience while watching Picnic at Hanging Rock, as it gives you so much to gawk upon. From the cinematography to the mysterious entity drawn from the infamous hanging rock, the film is both peculiar and ravishing from beginning to end.
