Storyline

Panic and intrigue grip the lives of a group of hardened factory workers with the arrival of a man they fear is a head-office spy sent to rob them of their redundancy payouts. The ruthless baiting between top dog Jack and his men only intensifies when the pacifist of the group, Wesley, befriends the seemingly normal outsider, David. But when Wesley discovers David is hiding a much darker secret, the seeds are planted for an explosive finale that strikes like an emotional sledgehammer and seal the fate of The Nothing Men. Written by Adam Fulton

Rich and Uncompromising
19 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I recently caught a second look at this film. It remains a brave portrait in a landscape of safe Australian choices. I'm aware that the film has had a long and arduous road in getting a theatrical release, but having now seen it writ large in a modern cinema, I was made aware of the importance of seeing some of the shadowy plays of our culture up on the big screen.

Technically polished, it strains the confines of its meagre budget and concentrates its priorities where they need to be - in the dialogues and in the performances. Its theatrical origins are obvious, but it doesn't need to be ashamed of them in the spirit of cinema. Its camera prowls like some kind of spectre waiting to possess these broken men. If they leave the circle of protection, the ritual of their lives is disrupted and chaos and entropy become their bedfellows. And that can only unleash a particular kind of hell on these shells of men.

As a raw and tattered banner of an aspect of 'Australian mateship' on screen, it really is a landmark work.
