Peter Weir Australia, 1977

J. O.'s rating of the film The Last Wave

An outstanding example of controlled, yet highly effective, storytelling by the brilliant Peter Weir - this is without a doubt his best picture. The eerie apocalypticism that manages to creep into the story so subtly soon becomes the overwhelming force that drives it. Beautifully shot from start to finish with incredibly compelling performances by all - "The Last Wave" is the perfect Australian new-wave film.
