A time capsule of 1970s Sydney and Ozploitation Cinema
15 June 2015 | by agro_sydneySee all my reviews

Sydney shines and is the star of this 1970s Ozploitation detective mystery. Jack Thompson plays Jon Cleary's Scobie Malone investigating the death of a high class prostitute/model at the Sydney Opera house. Scobie lives in a singles apartment complex surrounded by plenty of bare breasted young women lazing by the pool and only too willing to jump into bed with him. We get a tour of the bowels of the Sydney Opera House as one of the characters is chased by the suspected bad guy down stairs, ladders and endless corridors. (Why didn't she run out the front door?) Jack Thompson plays his role in a cheeky laconic manner and Judy Morris overacts as Helga. Look out for Bryan Brown in a bit part as a uniform cop at the Opera House. This is a time capsule of 1970s Sydney and cinema.
