Five Guys in a Car

Australia, 1996 (MIFF 1996, Fiction)

Director: Joel Anderson

This is a film about five guys in a car. The guys are headed somewhere and while they drive they talk and drink and we never really know what they are up to—until the end. This film which works well with tough, funny dialogue and a minimum of other diversions like set action etc. Pared down and with a sense of malevolence this film creates a compelling rhythm and has a strong young cast.(BH)
