A film version of the notorious events surrounding the demonization and media witchhunt of the religiously nutty mother of a baby who was gobbled by dingoes near Ayers Rock..... the famous 'dingo baby case'. Just shows that the Aussie press, owned by you know who, is as criminally irresponsible, ie full of lies, as the Pommie press, owned by you know who. find out more...

Plotwise; headcase Jake owes lots of drug money to drug lord's son John and John kidnaps Jake's younger brother as a hostage. Kid br find out more...
FARGO (1996)

Certification18 Our Rating

An excellent black comedy, handsome thriller and a tall story that keeps you guessing as it unwinds. The genuinely ridiculous plot (a man pays a couple of goons to 'pretend' to kidnap his wife in order to get his paws on his in-laws' 'ransom' money) is completely credible as mighty plans fall apart, spiralling ever more beyond the protagonist's control and leaving us marvelling at the complex stupidity of human nature. A modern classic.

This lavishly photographed and costumed action-drama-epic sticks to what we know of Genghis's early years, although that's not much, telling the story of how a young tribal boy overcame many obstacles, including slavery, to become a legendary conqueror. The widescreen suits this 'big sky' country and there is something remarkably authentic about the yurts and the costumes. Chosen for marriage, at the age of nine, by a female child, Borte, while he thinks he's doing the chosing, she becomes one o find out more...

Australia's dark secret of institutionalist eugenics gets an impressive and heartfelt celluloid airing in this adaptation of Doris Pilkington Garimara's book, a story based around the astonishing real life journey of three young girls, removed from their true Aboriginal families and transplanted to a boarding school/prison to be trained as domestic servants (from whence it was hoped they would quietly blend into white society), and their 1,500 mile trek home with only a rabbit proof fence to gui find out more...
