Watched this the other day with a short review below,

 

Mystery Road - AUS Release - 5.1 DTS Master Audio

Movie - 4/5 - Not a film knew a lot about. But the word mystery in film title and being an Australian film involving murder, crooks and police set in outback rural australia sure got my interest. And its a film I instantly from the opening liked the feel off. A huge long list of australian stars whom form some interesting charecters. 

 

PQ - 4/5 - Well shot capturing the australian outback and country rural setting 

AQ - 4/5 - Good dynamics and sound effects to support the film

Overall - 4/5 - A film I enjoyed, 
a mystery thriller it indeed is. Great to see the australian movie industry producing films like this. I want to watch more australian films like this ! :) 

 

taken a few screen shots from the movie as an indication of the picture quality of this blu-ray release..

I thought this was a fantastic slice of Aussie cinema. The stillness of the earlier sections are shattered by the final ten minutes. I hope it gets a second life on Bluray as it deserves a wider audience than the one it got on the big screen.

Adult cinema at its best.

I think this, with " RED HILL" and " THE HUNTER" are amongst my favourite films from anywhere in the past three years.

Why the hell are Aussie audiences indifferent to these brilliant films, but will flock to the latest piece of enormo-plex crap spewed out by Hollywood.

interesting you mention those two films ZM very much enjoyed them too. yep am not sure what it is about aussie audiences but really good films like this are over shadowed by holywood trash !

Re " THE HUNTER" -seldom has a film ended on a more unsettling note. It infuriates people. I heard people arguing all the way back to the carpark when I first saw it.

Just a little over $280,700.00. Consider what " Noah" grossed in the first weekend.

ZM.

And?

I bet the "Noah" advertising budget was a wee bit bigger.

I know which film I would rather see. ...and it certainly wouldn't feature that kiwi guy.

I'm starting to think that Russ sees himself as the new Charlton Heston.

I saw Noah

A bit not much good

Biggest problem not an accurate depiction of the story

Silly really because the Ol Testament reads better than Shakespeare and shows an imagination greater than any Hollywood scriptwriter could manage

But lack of audience for Aussie movies not related to popularity of US films

Why don't Australians read Patrick White a real novel about God instead of the da Vinci code nonsense

Why buy a fake burger at McDonalds instead of a real one at the local hamburger joint

I could go on

Actually that would be somebody else who's name escapes me(Christian Beale?) coming before Xmas

The new Moses

Hope it includes the bit where God pops in to kill Moses because he didn't circumcise his son and was saved by alert wife who saw the angel and lopped off the offending bit and threw it against the Angels leg
