In terms of plot and motivation ... an illogical mess that no amount of carefully moody cinematography can save.
Performances keep the tension building toward an incendiary climax.
Performances are uniformly impressive, with Stapleton guaranteed a place in the pantheon of creepily charismatic Australian screen criminals.
Cut Snake is an unexpected and invigorating piece of work, blessed with a simply brilliant central performance.
Nevertheless, lumpy, repetitive plotting keeps matters at a low simmer.
Its title suggests a hint of madness: instead, it's utterly conventional and lacking in fangs.
It's a minor story with minor ambitions, yet it manages to deliver a fully satisfying and moving experience.
In Tony Ayres' Cut Snake, the true blue Aussie crime flick gets a queer coat of paint. It masks itself as a standard crime flick, but subverts what we have come to expect from these films...
A tough little crime drama full of muted anger, growled dialogue and whispered threats...Much as we applaud the achievements of filmmakers working on small budgets, you can't hand out free passes when those limitations hobble the flow and feel of a film.
An inconsistent film covering too much familiar ground, Cut Snake often gets distracted by the need to service an admittedly striking (though largely pointless) 1970s production design.
It's a big movie, despite its small circle of characters, and rewarding for adventurous viewers.
Artfully shot by Simon Ford, with fine period detail from production designer, Josephine Ford, Cut Snake is technically top-notch, and emotionally uncompromising, as Ayres again strides into largely virgin territory for Australian cinema.
