Movie Genre - Top Ten Australian Movies

I didn’t know that was the criteria for realism. Tarantino pioneered realistic dialogue then.

The Madonna discussion or many others in reservoir dogs.

Again, I’m not just talking about dialogue.
I’m talking about Brown’s character being a family man.
Just a dad running a business.
I don’t see that in Reservoir Dogs, or The Godfather (he’s running an empire, that’s different, he can afford to be a family man) or The French Connection, but I’ve seen it a whole lot since, including Animal Kingdom.

Oh God i saw that think like 37 times on a contiki tour in 2001 because they only had 2 DVDs on the bus so they kept playing them over and over, and after that there’s almost no film I hate more.

Wake in Fright- is a must. Haunting.
Chopper - was brilliant- didn’t put a foot wrong.
Sunday Too Far Away - Australia as it was.
Snowtown- not to everyone’s taste but we haven’t had another true crime movie come close to its realism.

If you want to talk ground-breaking then the most influential Australian movie ever is “The Story of the Kelly Gang”.

Made in Melbourne in 1906, it was the first full length movie in the world.

Candy was great with a super Aussie cast including Heath Ledger, Geoffrey Rush and Abbie Cornish.

We have just started watching Jack Ryan and a very different looking Abbie Cornish is in it.

It hasn’t changed since 2000 odd, a beautiful little time capsule.

What was that caper film with David Wenham as the junkie?
That was good fun. Enjoyed that more than the Castle, TBH.
