Mystery Road wows UK critics

1 September 2014 6:58 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Ivan Sen.s Mystery Road has been warmly received by the UK critics as the Outback thriller began its cinema roll-out, and the Us release is set for October.

The detective story starring Aaron Pedersen, Hugo Weaving, Ryan Kwanten, Jack Thompson, Tony Barry, Robert Mammone and Tasma Walton opened on seven screens in London, Belfast, Dublin, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Sheffield last Friday, making a respectable £8,400 ($15,000).

Producer David Jowsey told If the UK distributor Axiom Films plans to expand the release to 28 cities through the end of October.

Typifying the warm critical reception, the Observer.s Mark Kermode declared, .This atmospheric Australian thriller is closer in tone to the measured, brooding unease of Ray Lawrence's Jindabyne than to the visceral thrills and spills of Greg Mclean's Wolf Creek.

.More interested in unpicking the broiling tensions of outback Queensland than in tying up the loose ends of his straggle-threaded whodunnit plot, »
