Movie Review: 'SAVAGE'
aotearoa / pacific islands | miscellaneous | opinion / analysis Dienstag September 22, 2020 20:22 by LAMA - Aotearoa Workers Solidarity Movement (AWSM)
A review of a movie about gang life in Aotearoa.
There is a beautifully acted and emblematic scene early in Savage, the newest movie about gangs in Aotearoa. In it, a founding member of the Savages revealingly named Damage[d]/Danny (Jake Ryan) tries to charm a young woman at a party. At first his efforts seem to be successful, then he resorts to an ugly aggressiveness that kills the mood he had almost achieved. This scene lays bare a Manichean struggle between an inner child reaching for a human connection and an outward broken, thuggish creature. Next we are given an extended flashback that shows how this combination came to be. It’s a catalogue of missteps and brutality towards a child in the hands of both an authoritarian father and similar father figures in institutional settings. By the time Danny leaves the latter, the damage is done and Damage is out savaging the world.
