“A slow-boiling, nail-biting, psychological ride... one of the best Australian films in recent years. ”~Simon Weaving, Screenwize
Aroview: The deadly underworld politics of a Melbourne crime family come under the microscope in this outstanding Australian gangland thriller.
Framed around several creepy, career-making performances Ė in particular, Jackie Weaver as the clanís saber-toothed matriarch Ė the filmís small-scale conflict benefits immensely from dir. Michodís sophisticated camera work and eye for unnerving details. Underneath it all, itís nothing we havenít seen before (or done better, i.e THE BOYS), though still has the power to stagger as a distinctive and impressive first-time filmmaking effort.
