Critic Reviews for The King Is Dead
The screenplay comes with a wealth of comical gags and observations about suburban life that many audiences should identify with.
If this film had a more propulsive plot, veered into Straw Dogs territory and retained its dark laughs, I imagine we would be talking about an Australian classic.
The King is Dead!, while not as brilliant as Bad Boy Bubby or Alexandra's Project, shares with those films a unique and perverse vision of Australian suburbia ... De Heer's always bold, and here he's bold again. The Independent King is certainly not dead.
The King is Dead has some great comic asides, and the finale paints Max and Therese into a genuinely dangerous and entertaining corner.
The King is Dead! is a deliciously dark genre mash-up, coy and explorative but tight and insular, sprayed with wry laughs and a genuinely foreboding undertone.
