    simply riveting!
    This one has the same awesome and riveting impact on me as "A Ghost Story" or "Nomadland" or "The Power of the Dog" because of how it breaks the obligatory convention of its genre and stands as a unique iconoclastic beacon of its own. I am not going to disclose the story for that is also quite unique. As far as the story is concerned, it will come to you if you sit through the initially ambiguous but very intriguing plot and the likelihood that Australian may sound nothing like English to you. (fortunately, there are subtitles). The things that grabbed me the most are the orchestration of its cinematic components which is just brilliant. The design of the sound tracks, the pictorial composition of the shots, and the editing all has this very unique flavour to them. Much like the marks of finger prints, but above that all, it is the acting that kept me to my seat. Joe Edgerton and especially Sean Harris are simply just ace. The show has 2 wins and 16 nominations. This film is so good I simply can't recommend it enough.

    Sorry but not Sorry
    It was horrible. That is all.. I know they would like me to use 600 characters. All I can say is it was not worth the watch for me.. I dozed off on it 4 times. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I am shocked because of the actors involved. However, they did the best they could do with the script. The last 30 mins I fastforwarded through so I could end my own discomfort. Why was it excruciatingly slow!? It could have been done in 30 minutes. I really am taken back by how long it is. Really all for nothing at all. Heavy Sigh. I am totally disappointed by this. It's been ages since I watch a bad film. But this is one.
