​​Fleeing into the Australian outback after their father has a psychotic episode, two city-bred adolescent siblings (Jenny Agutter and Luc Roeg) meet a young Aboriginal man (a young David Gulpilil) on a ritual “walkabout” away from family and home. “The first time I saw Walkabout I found the ending so sad and depressing I was never able to put it out of my mind. And that’s what I thought of when I first read the script for Brokeback Mountain—the bliss that Jack and Ennis found in nature versus the dreary reality of civilization. That might have been the first time I thought about contrasting worlds and how to create them visually when I was designing a movie.”—Judy Becker
