News & Interviews for Mystery Road
Critic Reviews for Mystery Road
As a straight-up, "Law & Order"-esque criminal investigation, it's watchable. But lingering shots and half-baked racial commentary overstate the importance of "Mystery Road."
I won't lie and say Mystery Road kept me on the edge of my seat for its duration, but there is a lot to enjoy in its delicately peeled back layers.
This tightly wound drama evokes a strikingly inventive sense of the Wild West in the Australian Outback.
Sen (who also shoots, scores and edits) goes walkabout through the minefield of contemporary Australian culture, offering an evocative snapshot of an unravelling crime scene - social, racial and economic.
A superior and taut outback adventure, you'd have to go back to Samson and Delilah to find an Australian feature this bonsa.
Audience Reviews for Mystery Road
Indeed a slow-burning thriller. Not quite up to my taste, though.
