Directed by: David Michod
Starring: Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson
I loved Animal Kingdom, David Michod’s feature debut. What I liked best about it was that it tore off the hackneyed bandage of cliché surrounding Australian films, that being that they’re all thrillers set in the outback. Well now, from the same director, comes this thriller set in the outback about a solitary drifter (Guy Pearce) who has his last possessions stolen by a gang and swears revenge. He is assisted by Rey (Pattinson), an injured member of the gang, left-behind to fend for himself. Sounds like a bit of an over-done yawn, but Michod’s cold style could keep me there.
