Critic Reviews for Wasted on the Young
Wasted on the Young's pulsating soundtrack, immediate direction by first time filmmaker Lucas ... and Leanne Cole's hectic editing all lend the film a vibrancy that is sorely lacking in a lot of cinema these days.
A scorching ultra modern morality fable that uses school grounds, party houses and internet connections as stomping grounds for social allegory.
Visually impressive, but the script needed a big angry red pen taken to it. Oh, and does every character need to shuffle around like they're in a My Chemical Romance video clip?
Wasted on the Young is a slick and striking film that presents a disturbingly recognisable world of plutocratic rule in the dark heart of Australian society.
Audience Reviews for Wasted on the Young
'Wasted on the Young'. A party gone wrong with devastating consequences. Destructive, tense, and two wonderful lead performances.
Stylistic Australian thriller of riverting and thought provoking atomosphere. This is original enough to keep me on the edge of my seat, and once again its another extraordinary debut for an Australian talent
This was an interesting story with some great young actors. It was a very dark story and the ending was great.
