Sadly Overlooked Australian Indie Gem
5 November 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

No through road is another example of Australian cinema pushed aside to make way for films that paint a much prettier picture of the country.

I found the film a powerful and quite real look at the sort of things that go on in quiet suburban areas here.

The story is simple and subtle in it's unfolding, a man who is very much a loner, comes home from taking photographs at the beach and unwinds with a book and a glass of wine. While almost dozing off he lapses back to consciousness upon hearing a noise in a downstairs room.

What transpires from this is a situation that spirals out of control into a finale that is truly bleak.

If you want big budget, glossy looks and flashy editing and pacing - look elsewhere. But...

...if you want gritty suburban horror not too far removed from some of the awful things that litter Australian news headlines, you're in for an absolute treat.

Currently this film has a much undeserved 3.5 rating on the IMDb, it's really sad when a decent film doesn't find it's audience.

If you do like this film then also check out some of the other brilliant Australian indie cinema out there such as Noise, Rosebery 7470, Acolytes, Storage, The Square and Visitors. You'll not be disappointed!
