In writer/director David Michôd's feature debut,
, a family of criminals underwent their own personal apocalypse. If that had an end-of-times feel, this impressive follow-up goes even further. A caption places the story in "Australia. Ten years after the collapse". It's a husk of a society, stripped of morality, with sun-bleached landscapes home to emotionally ravaged characters. There are no heroes or villains, only survivors. A seldom better Guy Pearce plays the suicidally determined protagonist. After his car is stolen, he teams up with the wounded brother of one of the thieves (Robert Pattinson, giving an excellent performance) to track it down. But why is the car so important? There are echoes of
and Cormac McCarthy's
in this beautifully shot dystopian western and, like
, the film is excruciatingly intense and prone to explosions of violence. No matter how spare and uncompromising the approach, though, it still has the decency to offer a solution to its mystery.
Premiere. A vengeful man wanders the Australian Outback in the aftermath of a global economic collapse that has devastated Western civilisation. His only remaining goal is to find the men who stole his car, and he acquires an ally in the younger brother of one of the thieves. Crime drama, starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson.
