Justin Kurzel Australia, 2011

J. O.'s rating of the film Snowtown

A harrowing experience that pummels the audience within an inch of its life, and then resuscitates it for more. Visually gorgeous; the atmosphere is cold, the music pulses like a jackhammer, and the performances are as raw and powerful as I've ever seen. A nearly incomprehensibly powerful look at murder, shame, and role models.
