  • #LFF: Snowtown

    Movie Review | Ali | 18th October 2011

    If you'd have told me in February that Aussie drama Animal Kingdom would be the second best anything of the year, I'd have called you a drongo and a flaming galah. Nevertheless, Snowtown – a true-to-life serial killer drama from first-time director Justin Kurzel – effortlessly topples it as the best Australian crime thriller of 2011. In fact, it's pretty close to being the film of the year, period. If you can make it through to the end, you'll make yourself a promise that you'll never watch it again. It's so depressing, you may need to ride the Nyan Cat home just to shake yourself out of your slump.

    Movie Review | Ali | 24th February 2011

    Every once in a while, a fantastic new indie movie washes up on our shores, having surfed a wave of critical and commercial success from its native country... only for it to get utterly corn-holed at the UK box-office because no one can be bothered to go see it. Animal Kingdom is one such movie and you owe it a couple of hours of your life, because... really, what else are you going to do this weekend? Call your Mum? Please.
