HAIL borders on docu-drama blending both fact and fantasy from Dan’s life. This is the real thing, for the most part. It’s told by real people, who have had these actual experiences, replaying themselves for the camera. Dan is in love with Leanne. They were born on the same day, the 6th of November, 1960. They eat together. They live together. They steal together. When Dan’s love is suddenly torn away from him, he is reduced to savagery. Haunted by damning memories, Dan awakes to a transparent face against the sun . . . a half formed body slumped over a fence. Dan swallows. Tries to sleep. Tries to hide. Dan inhabits a world created by an idiot – unfinished, incomplete. There are holes in this world; gaps and voids in its creation. Time is thin around the cause and dense around the effect. Crushed by malevolent beauty, suffocating and filled with violence, Dan thrashes against the tide and goes on a journey to take back what is his. Lukey Folkard, Australian Film Review
