Peter Weir Australia, 1977

Joel's rating of the film The Last Wave

A little more straight-laced then the Still above would suggest. Yet perhaps that's it's strength, it's both somewhat normal 80s crime thriller and elements of the mystical surrealism of Picnic at Hanging Rock. It's those poetic elements and the downright creepiness of this film that cause it to linger.
