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).
