Goofs

The train carriage in which the massacre occurs is halfway down the train. One of the victims is a man in an electric wheelchair. Because there is a gap between train and platform on Melbourne's train system people in electric wheelchairs must board the train in the front carriage, where the driver can assist by placing a ramp between the train and platform.

Quotes

Constable Graham McGahan: I got this theory about that. You know, what I read was, heaven or hell, is whatever you're thinking that second between your body dying and your brain dying. Your regrets, who you loved, who loved you. What you remember of your life, that's the eternity everyone's talking about. So, if you are a fuckwit, then... when you die, in that ten seconds between your brain and your body dying, your brain remembers all the time you were a fuckwit - over and over again... until it feels like this ...

All roads lead to.... where?
7 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

After seeing an interview with director Matthew Saville, who seemed as intelligent as any film maker you could care to name, I was interested enough to go out and track this one down. And it doesn't disappoint. Certainly visually it is wonderfully well executed, and the sound is strong too. The dialog is sharp, subtle, and at points hilarious (and supremely Australian).

Unfortunately, the downside is the disjointedness of the plot line. To me it seemed yearning to be free from a plot line as a major source of interest (and focus instead in the pure dialog and landscape - certainly I feel that's where Saville's interest is). But it wasn't. There are two driving plot lines along the whole film and something happens in every scene, even though subplots are not continued, or often resolved. To me the finale was also ultimately quite generic and futile as a point of interest.

Ultimately, the words 'interesting, but not "great"' come to mind, and it fits vaguely into a bucket with several other Australian films of the last 5 years (candy, little fish, look both ways, Japanese story, etc.) in dealing with the same demographic, themes of emptiness and loss, and being willingly obtuse (artistic?) in its presentation, even if this one does have its own thing happening a little outside of that also.
