In this paper we have not sought to document any particular period or aspect of the history of Australian film criticism. The early ages of Christianity were marked by great catas- trophes, which were also great spectacles. "Melancholy and meditation, the demons of analysis and controversy appear at the same moment, and, as it were, hand in hand." He is repelled by the excesses of the German "Romantic School." For the art of "Heart of Darkness" -- as in every psychological masterpiece -- lies in the relation of the things of the spirit to the things of the flesh, of the invisible life to the visible, of the sub-conscious life within us, our obscure motives and instincts, to our conscious actions, feelings and outlook.
