The "shocking, sensational expose" that shocked no-one!
18 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

Supposedly a responsible and informative look at what adult Sydneysiders get up to in the Kings Cross district (This being the Times Square/Soho equivalent in this city).

Problem was, EVERYONE knew what went down there in 1974. They knew in 1954. I'm sure they had a pretty good idea in 1904?

Consequently this sensationalised account of supposedly deviate aussie behaviour went nowhere. I saw the flick on its release...I think there were 8 other people in the theater...and before you start labelling me a pervert (well, that I AM I guess, but that's not the point) I was covering the flick for a newspaper!

To date, I am reliably informed, the film has yet to return one million dollars!
