Last night I watched Snowtown. Directed by Justin Kurzel, the film is about the Snowtown Murders which took place in the Adelaide suburb of the same name in the 1990's. This one isn't for the faint hearted and probably not suitable for girlfriends, first dates or a weekend at home with the parents. It's dark and reminiscent of Harmony Korine's Gummo as it explores the world of desolate white impoverished enclaves and the notion of family and community. It's brutal and highly recommended.
