    Well more/less any Aus production bar Bazz Luhrman and Mad Max franchise is bound to be an indie. Seen most of them during the hey-day of DVD rental (some on TV) and also during the availability of spotlight shone by Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton. I mean, it may have happened mostly before I arrived in Aus in mid 90s, however people used to flock to see the next Aussie gem on the big screen, and although blockbuster superheroes have taken everything over - I refuse to stop digging for the next gem out there. I like Guy Pierce too and Richard Roxborough - but I've got this affinity with Davids work, can't really explain it. Dunno man. You'll have to seek them out

    Gettin' Square (2003) Not a film of huge ambitions, however quite entertaining and absolutely stolen by David Wenham. And he generally seems unable of making a false step on screen.

    Noise (2007) Quite underrated for all sorts reasons and from all kindsa angles. I mean Animal Kingdom really grabs you and you cannot argue with the greatness. This is a bit of a slower burn of a film - it sorta asks you to give some of yourself, really invest in the watch, and really rewards thereafter. A paraphrase: "You can photocopy your ar*se if you like, old Graham. It won't make a scrap of difference." Whenever I hear the police banter about "mouthbreathers" - each time I get a clear image of one of the senior Aus politicians (that shall remain nameless and their party not specified).
