Review Roundup – Into the Outback

John Jarratt in Wolf Creek 2

Two more pieces of writing on other websites to spruik:

I found Wolf Creek 2 an interesting film; it’s marketed as a gritty horror film, a successor to its (quite brutal) predecessor, but there’s a lot of intelligence beneath its bloody surface, a satire of Australian xenophobia amongst other things. It’s also a pretty entertaining film, an absurd black comedy as often as it is a horror flick. My full review can be found over at Cheated Hearts.

In a very different take on the Australian outback, I had the chance at the 500 Club to interview John Curran, the director of the beautiful, poetic film Tracks, which tells the tale of a young woman’s journey from the centre of Australia to its end. It was my first opportunity to write up a film interview (like a proper film writer or something!) and I think it went okay (though the spots of awkwardness in the interview have, of course, been culled).

  1. Both are good reviews, as always. And the second is definitely right and proper. 🙂

    They also both sound like good movies. Do you know if either has international distribution?

    • Haha, it wasn’t anything too interesting. As it was only my second interview ever – and my first one through a publicity company with some other guy coordinating the phone call – I got a little flustered at the beginning and jumped right into the questions without any kind of introduction or whatever. I think it ended up okay 🙂
