Half a century on from its premiere, Nicolas Roeg's strange outback parable continues to mystify and unsettle as much as it did upon release. Looking closely at the film's imagery, thematic elements and departures from its source text, Neil Sinyard detects warnings about the corrosive force of industrialised society and the disconnections of urban life that, in 2021, seem more relevant than ever.
