In the 1980s, Paul Cox created a niche in Australian cinema that deserves to be revisited, and that is what Neil Sinyard's acutely perceptive study of Lonely Hearts does. Not everyone appreciated Cox at the time, but no other Australian filmmaker during that prolific time was bringing such sensitivity and originality to the cinematic exploration of relationships. Arguably, Lonely Hearts – with its leading roles superbly played – is the finest flower of Cox's early period.
