Up there with "Blue Murder" and "Pheonix"
2 November 2012 | by (Australia,Perth) – See all my reviews

This is just superb Aussie true crime drama, with David Wenham utterly convincing as disgraced(but bloody brilliant)lawyer Andrew Fraser.

The Melbourne crime milieu feels just right.

Colin Friels makes a great Lewis Moran.

Kris McQuade delivers a searing performance as crime matriarch Kath Pettingill(Granny Evil).

You'll also never be able to quite shake the Walsh St murders after seeing this...rendered like something out of a nightmare.

"Killing Time" also gets its period feel RIGHT without overly drawing attention to its set/clothes/hair/music details--HELLO "Puberty Blues".

Liked the use of Nick Cave/Hunters and The Saints.

NOT-TO-BE-MISSED.
