All Critics (7)

What starts out as a promising drama...quickly dissolves into an ugly, unpleasant character portrait about an unrepentant brute who prefers to scream at the world rather than confront it.

It's Courtin-Wilson's willingness to push boundaries, to explore ways in which the troubled self can be depicted, that makes Hail so singular and striking.

MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Its poetic opening moments soon descend into raw, wrenching and compelling viewing.

It is a tough film and I don't mind tough films but there's a relentlessness about this journey, which I found myself reacting against.

Perhaps not a film for the faint-hearted, it is nevertheless an important entry into the Australian film landscape.
