Storyline

From dusk til' dawn on K Road captures the woozy horror of a best-forgotten night out. The filmmakers roam the bars, takeaways and brothels, encountering several night-lifers, none of whom turns out to be what they first appear or pretend to be. The most fully explored character, an amiable young Sikh taxi driver, begins the film expressing his optimistic view of the opportunities New Zealand provides. He spends the rest of the night demonstrating just how wishful those views are. His excursion away from the strip, to a home in the suburbs, is the film's most original foray into pseudo-documentary revelation. Meanwhile two old mates get together for a drink and a few rounds of pool. As the beers flow they peel back layers of betrayal, hostility and sexual one-upmanship. A woman in the bar mistakes the intensity of their interaction for enviable closeness and sidles up. A good Samaritan, recovering from a recent break-up, offers to help out a crippled and bitter ex-cop. A prostitute's ... Written by MM/BG

Analogue brilliance in a synth pop age
24 February 2008 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

OK, I hope you get the analogy. This movie is the equivalent of a brilliant musician, armed only with an acoustic guitar, walking onto the stage at a Spice Girls reunion concert. There are no special effects, no stars and no CGI.Just pure performance.

The acting is almost universally mesmerizing. Stand out performances from Bruce Hopkins, Neil (Nial?) Greenstock and Rajeev Varma. This is a gritty, realistic film that shows that it's possible to make great cinema without a big budget, and that its performance, narrative and development above all else (OK, editing should come first, but you get my point). Editing and direction deserves a special mention, these guys really know their craft. Downsides would be lighting (esp. bar scene) and the final climax is confusing on the first watch, but I'm being picky. Overall this deserves to be a world wide classic of minimal budget film-making.
