Aroview: Peter Jackson follows his zombie trilogy with this Oscar-nominated tour-de-force based on the Parker-Hulme murders of the 1950s.
Though the entrails might be neatly restrained, there's no mistaking his swooping camera, his penchant for animation and fantasy, and that unabashed Kiwiness. A fiercely independent talent, a truly unique vision.
4 stars (Very Good) True story of Juliet Hulme and Pauline Parker, two close friends who share a love of fantasy and literature, who conspire to kill Pauline's mother when she tries to end the girls' intense and obsessive relationship. Incisive & very recommended.~GenXGirl
