This is one of the best first features in recent festival memory.
Strong debut from Australian writer-director Michael Henry. Tightly wound and nicely progressed, this impressive potboiler deserves a wider audience than its limited release pattern will afford it.
It's essentially well acted, beautifully shot, and the script has enough propulsion to sustain its very modest eighty-eight minutes.
Michael Henry's Blame clearly takes inspiration from the greats, and the writer/director certainly recognises the ingredients required for a taut psychological thriller, but he doesn't quite follow through in the execution.
The menace is missing. What we get instead is much bumbling about in the bush.
This is a local production that punches above its weight.
There's nothing going on here that you haven't seen done before elsewhere and better, but there's still enough here that's fresh.
Aided by an excellent cast and terrific premise, this had the potential to be an engaging nail-biter but unfortunately ends up predictable and contrived.
Writer/director Michael Henry gradually teases out the secrets that only one of the five know: secrets that once revealed, become demons that won't be easily put down
Here's a juicy revenge thriller that is crammed with tension, action, suspense and a couple of twists before its deadly resolution
...Blame primarily comes off as a stagnant, irritatingly talky drama that ultimately feels like an abject exercise in needlessness.
