Australian Cinema 1.0.1

So your interested in Australian produced films but don't know where to start?
Or perhaps your a seasoned Australian movie cinephile & are simply looking for that next Aussie masterpiece. Look no further, you've definitely come to the right place!
A selection of quality (& some not so) Australian cinema from through-out the ages. Be it Action, Drama, War, Western, Comedy, Horror, Thriller, Martial Arts, SciFi & more... your sure to find some inspiration here!

I started this list because searching for 'true' Australian films here on the database always returns a mix including American productions filmed in Australia...you won't find any of them here. For a film to be included it must feature a majority Australian cast & be filmed in Australia. No American Productions filmed in Australia will be included. You WON'T be seeing films like: The Matrix, Dark City or Queen of the Damned listed here!

This is an ongoing list that will be updated as I view more. Thus t's a select list which will hopefully become definitive in the not to distant future.

(May 2015) Huge Update of Retro Horror & Thriller titles. (Sep 2014)

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
In a self-destructing world, a vengeful Australian policeman sets out to stop a violent motorcycle gang. (88 mins.)
Director: George Miller
“ Probably my all time favourite Australian film.
Even better than its often thought to be superior sequel??.... You bet!
Not just an action packed, but more Intelligent, grittier, darker, rawer and yes a more emotional film. ” - spike06
 
2.
The Road Warrior (1981)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
In the post-apocalyptic Australian wasteland, a cynical drifter agrees to help a small, gasoline rich, community escape a band of bandits. (95 mins.)
Director: George Miller
“ The film that started an entire subgenre on its own. Often emulated but never surpassed. The post apocalyptic action film extravaganza...Mad Max 2 - The Road Warrior.
A great sequel, a fantastic action film in its own right! ” - spike06
 
3.
Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X

An earthquake in rural Australia causes a dangerous leak at WALDO, a nuclear waste storage facility... (92 mins.)
Director: Ian Barry
“ A fun scifi actioner with car stunt work reminiscent of Mad Max. My first viewing left me slightly underwhelmed but I recently revisited, and my attitude has changed. Sure there's nowhere near the amount of high speed chases id like, but the story and atmosphere make up this shortfall. This is a bonafide Australian classic. A must watch by any lover of action cinema. ” - spike06
 
5.
Wake in Fright (1971)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X

“ On the cutting edge for the whole Ozploitation movement in Australia. Rediscovered in 2007 and remastered from this long lost negative. A story of one mans descent into alcoholism amidst the chaos and brutality of an alcohol fueled mining town set in the aching beauty of the Australian outback. A film which hit me with the force of a raging storm. An astounding work of art. ” - spike06

“ The Latest DVD release of this film proclaims:
"Before Mad Max & The Road Warrior there was Stone".

Indeed there was. Stone being released a whole 6 years before Mad Max! ; D
While not on par with the aforementioned, deserving of its B movie cult status none the less. ” - spike06

A group of skinheads become alarmed at the way their neighbourhood is changing. (94 mins.)
Director: Geoffrey Wright
“ Highly controversial at the time of its release because of its violent content. Inspired by the highly publicized crimes of a leading Melbourne Neo-Nazi skinhead. The film which launched Russel Crowe on the world stage.
BTW, its got a cracking punk sound track if you can find it! ” - spike06
 
8.
