This movie tried real hard to be an epic, but it fell far short.
It was violent and too disturbing (the rape scene) to be a movie that I would consider a masterpiece.

From the beautiful credits, to the violent opening sequence, to the beautifully shot finally scene involving two brothers watching the sunset, this film is absolutley, and beautifully haunting. At first, i couldnt grasp why this film hit me like a ton of bricks and then after watching it repeatidly, it's just all and all an original film. Guy Pearce plays the middle brother of three, who basically is told by Ray Winstone's character (an amazing performance as a lawman trying to protect his wife, Emma Watson, from the savagery of Australian life) that unless he kills his sadistic older brother, he'll kill his younger brother. The film goes back and forth and focuses on Guy Pearce's journey to finding his older brother and Ray Winstone's effort to hide the brutal secret of a crime committed against a friend of his wifes. The shots alone are absolutley beautiful. The thing that definetly gives the scenes their dreamy-like waves is Nick Cave's score. Nick Cave (who wrote the screenplay) composed an amazing set of songs to the sequences in the film, topping it off to an amazing acted, unpredictable at times film. Having it's fair share off bloody violence (including a "whipping" scene), amazing film all around.

Mesmerizing!! This film is the find of the year! You can't take your eyes off the screen! Everything from the acting, to the cinematography, the score, the lyrical story...just amazing. Ray Winstone once again proves to be one of the best actors out there and Guy Pearce is simply brilliant, his performance moved me to tears. This movie stayed with me long after I left the theatre, made me reevaluate the true "civility" of human nature. Go see this movie it truely restored my faith in filmmaking this year! One of the Best of 2006.
