Uncompromising and distressing, Snowtown delves into the grizzly events of Australia’s worst serial murders, while exploring the slippery slope of vigilante justice within a community left to the wolves.
Graphic but not gratuitous; an uncompromising historical film made with such proficiency that it cannot be dismissed.
Full review by Chris Pandolfi.
Following its recent run of AACTA Awards, Snowtown is getting a release in the US on 2 March 2012. iTunes has released a trailer for the renamed The Snowtown Murders, a name which may have more meaning for the US audience who may not have as much of a connection to the name Snowtown. Unfortunately, it also makes it sound a little bit like a movie of the week or forensic investigation special. The US trailer also adds a fair bit of text spelling out why the murders were bad.
