2UE That Movie Show

David Mich˘d's sensational directorial debut Animal Kingdom (2010) reinvigorated my faith that Australian cinema is capable of truly profound complexity.

Gordon and the Whale

Ben Mendelsohn steals the show. This man portrayed the most subtle creep I've seen on film in years. Animal Kingdom is a must see.

Animal Kingdom is frequently shocking - not just because it makes Air Supply's 'I'm All Out Of Love' sound cool.

Just as the protagonist announces from the outset that crime doesn't pay, in Animal Kingdom grime doesn't play.

Cinema Sight

An intimate portrait of a criminal family that resembles the Mafia in virtually no way.

Movie Talk

Animal Kingdom has been dubbed an 'Australian GoodFellas'. Director David Mich˘d isn't as flashy as Scorsese, but his portrayal of the violent downfall of a dysfunctional family of criminals shows that he's a master at building slow-burning tension.

Window to the Movies

Mich˘d takes familiar material and approaches it with less emphasis on the sensational and more on the surreal atmosphere of accepted dread.

Writer/director David Mich˘d pumps the plot full of tension through layers of increasingly dangerous and volatile characters until it's almost unbearable.

A brooding Australian thriller that marks director David Mich˘d as a talent to watch.

It includes enough localised details about the changing nature of crime and the debilitating bonds of family to give it a distinctive voice all its own, ensuring it never feels like a Hollywood rip-off.
