Review: Animal Kingdom

16 July 2011 2:29 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

This is the Pure Movies review of Animal Kingdom, directed by David Michôd and starring James Frecheville, Joel Edgerton, Bryce Lindemann, Guy Pearce, Paul Smits, Jacki Weaver, Luke Ford and Sullivan Stapleton. There are some accolades that sound like the very opposite; the best giblet-based pate, for example, or the best late-night garage. So, I want you to believe me when I say that Animal Kingdom is the best Australian film that I have ever seen, and I want you to believe it without irony. Animal Kingdom (I know – it sounds like a Disney romp, but stay with me) follows the eighteen year old, vaguely gormless, apparently ‘invisible’ Joshua ‘Jay’ Cody as he passes in to the guardianship of his grandmother. Well, his grandmother and extended family of criminal uncles; Darren, Baz, Craig and Andrew ‘Pope’ Cody. For this, like so many that has gone before it, is a film »
