Samantha Lang's Australian rural gothic, which premiered in the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, offers a few twists but id ultimately frustrating and pretentious due to Laura Jones' enigmatic and undernourished script.
Obviously, this is a must see for fans of Welles, but any film buff would certainly dig this doc.
A tight, claustrophobic psychological thriller from Down Under.
The Well wins points for its creative use of filters and silence... but those looking for a real creepshow will probably be left wanting.
This unconventional and macabre Australian film is an exploration of yearning and the always fascinating subject of relationships between women.
Despite a deliberate paced and occasional pretentions, this is an effective psychological thriller that studies sexual repression.
