What feeling do you have when you wake up in the morning? When your feet touch the floor? Or before that, when you're lying there thinking about your feet hitting the floor. Do you know what I'm talking about?

A visually stunning and surreal film which left me perplexed and amazed. Guy Pierce is a marvel, who knew anyone could do so much with a script that is about ten words long, 'Under' acting at its best.
I never really thought much of Robert Pattinson up until now but he is also surprisingly excellent in his risky supporting role.
Very original, very Australian and definitely not a film for the masses, it's certainly open to interpretation. Shockingly violent,dark,gritty, confusing and awkward. But it's the best thing I've seen in years.
If you are bored with the ten a penny 'Blockbusters' that Hollywood churns out by the dozen then I would thoroughly recommend this thought provoking and refreshingly different film. Ten out of ten.
