It's disturbing, yet compelling viewing.
An eye-opening, unsettling look at a part of the national character we thought had died off decades ago.
What follows is a deeply uncomfortable look at toxic masculinity, male domination of public spaces through microaggressions, and the binge drinking culture that rots small mining towns.
The interactions between Lina and Steph and the locals of Coolgardie make for a surprisingly riveting drama that could almost have been scripted.
A nuanced portrait of power, gender and crushing small town sadness.
One can only imagine the moments left unfilmed, in the undocumented version of this story, which repeats itself, in three-monthly cycles, out there in the red dust, where the men wait for young travellers like mangy dogs for carrion.
Jaw-dropping, stomach-churning and thought-provoking -- literally always at the same time -- Hotel Coolgardie is one of the most confronting and compelling documentaries ever filmed in this country.
It's a fascinating, appalling, revealing film about the murkier end of Australian masculinity.
A cross between Kiwi rugby documentary The Ground We Won and an Aussie outback horror film, Hotel Coolgardie is a compelling yet chilling watch.
Hotel Coolgardie is an ugly film, but a revealing one
Gleeson's unvarnished style actually leans towards signs of friendship and understanding, but there are several scenes that are nightmarish.
The film builds towards an ending that is as real-life horrific as anything Wolf Creek could muster...
