Here's a forgotten Australian film. Regarded as an Ozploitation movie, Initiation doesn't exactly fit that description. It's about an American teenager who travels to Australia to live with his crop-dusting father (Bruno Lawrence) after his mother dies. His dad lives in a remote South Australian town. It's a familiar concept and Aussie movies loved putting foreigners in films (Razorback, Walkabout, Frog Dreaming, The Coca Cola Kid etc). Facing bankruptcy the son's father begins smuggling drugs for a wealthy dealer and during one of their runs, their plane crashes and they're pitted against the harsh Australian outback. The story aint the best but the film is shot really well. The use of landscape is really well photographed and there are some great hallucination scenes when the kid eats poison mushrooms. Also impressive is a water fall sequence which has a character topple over and then climbs his way back up. I had never heard of this flick until last year and it's available from Flashback Entertainment, dirt cheap ($2). It's money well spent!!!!
