We're not turning around. He's gone!
What do you mean, "He's gone"? He was still moving. I fucking saw him still moving.
We killed people!
What do you mean? Turn the fucking car around!
He's gone! What are we supposed to do?
Damn it, this shit's not worth it for me to leave him there!
We killed people, man.
God damn it! Please, I'm begging you. He's my fucking brother.

Felt like an apocalyptic Western meets old school Road Warrior. Filmed in the Australian desert, I think they could have financed this film from loose change at starring actors Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson's houses.
Without a doubt the best performance from Robert Pattinson I've seen. Granted, I've not seen too many Pattinson films but he does a really good job of playing the half wit brother of one of the dudes jacked Guy's car.
Mysterious drifter shows up at the filthiest, dingiest outback pub in Australia just for a glass of water. Three shot up dudes in a truck crash outside the pub, steal his car and he will stop and nothing, nothing to get it back.
It's a wonderfully dreary world in which this film is set. Everyone is so dirty. They should get an Oscar for make up when all the actors did was not shower for what looks about three months.
Lots of long shots, tension filled chords supply the majority of the soundtrack.
I really dug it. Most folks are gonna hate it. Very gritty. Very dirty. Very violent. Very non-Hollywood.
It's a nice piece of cinema. And there's a midget.
