For while Going Down has all the wit and inventiveness that tempt a critic to call it the best Australian film in years, its basic strength is a riotous realism that should appeal to youth audiences in droves
(Meaghan Morris, Australian Financial Review, July 1, 1983).
Going Down is a film that has been little screened or critically discussed locally since its release. Yet not only is it, inarguably, a key work in the history of independent feature filmmaking in this country for the way it combines and mutually enriches both naturalistic and expressionistic approaches to narrative cinema, it is also in its own terms one of the finest and most memorable films made in Australia.
