Some nice soppy tv too. Dr Blake and Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries.

Just to add to the others who like Rake :)

+1 for Animal Kingdom (it's nothing to do with playful critters, in case you're wondering...)

 

And Babadook, which has been mentioned elsewhere (do NOT watch this your kiddies... unless you want them to run away from home...)

 

Also, Last Train to Freo. Very gripping.

Classic Aussie films, well there were many ...

 

Walkabout - lost me

 

Storm Boy - love the South Australian Coast

 

Puberty Blues (movie) - the girls who wrote the original novel were close friends of my primary school teacher. Brings back memories.

 

Dead Clam - Nicole Kidman's first hit movie and before she became Mrs Cruise.

 

Young Einstein - Underrated wacky humour.

 

Muriel's Wedding - I didn't care for the story, but the backdrop is quintessential Australian. 

 

Charlotte's Web - I liked this more than Babe.

 

Predestination - Amazingly clever.

 

Mad Max 2 - The best.

Since this is an election year, I should mention Don's Party.

As my uncle was in it, I have to agree!
