Slow-burn outback thriller

This Australian outback suspense film from Heath Davis feels a bit like a slow-burn tribute to noir westerns like Red Rock West. Stunning desert footage, a great cast and a tight script with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. The title is an interesting analogy for the barren-ness of the Australian outback after decades of exploitation which is a nice gritty backdrop to the story which revolves around a corporate bloke (Ben Geurens) returning to his run-down hometown where the locals are either drunk, corrupt or strippers. I found this sleeper on GooglePlay, definitely recommend to fans of gritty genre.
