Aro Recommended Chopper


Australia 2000, 94 minutes
Dir. Andrew Dominik
Rating: [R18]
Genres: Drama / Gangsters, Prison

Topics: Period 1970s, Period 1980s, Biopic.


Aroview: An unruly character-portrait of Australia's most notorious living criminal, Mark 'Chopper' Read, whose attention-grabbing exploits in the 70s and 80s (and bestselling books) made him a household name.

Thanks to taut direction and an AFI-award-winning performance by Eric Bana (THE CASTLE) this true-life 'bogeyman' is scary, amoral and complex, brandishing a compelling dark wit to go with his 'sawn-offs'. Events are based around Read's spell in Pentridge Prison and the Bojangles Nightclub killing.
