Sweet Country (2017)
Critic Reviews for Sweet Country
Sweet Country has a shaggy, digressive eccentricity common to Ozploitation cinema, not to mention a humane understanding of its characters ...
The story is both fresh and archetypal; the landscape both hard and delicate - and beautifully observed.
The spare, classical chase drama that ensues is seeded with barbed observations on colonialism, cultural erasure and rough justice, kept poetically succinct by Thornton's lithe, soaring visual storytelling.
This is a slice of Australian history that an indigenous director such as Thornton is best equipped to depict; only by confronting the racism of a bygone period can we hope to understand why racism is still so prevalent in this "sweet country."
