Wake in Fright Regisserad av Ted Kotcheff
Got this wrong, for some reason; thought it was like STRAW DOGS, wimpy city type (a schoolteacher) terrorised by hicks, whereas it’s more like WALKABOUT in reverse, not a case of venturing deep into the Outback and gradually eliciting some kind of wisdom but a case of trying in vain to get out, back to civilisation, and sinking ever further into degradation.
