Reptile (2020) [Short]

Australia (MIFF 2021 )
Director: Jordan Giusti

You always have to watch out for those early warning signs.

A group of schoolboys engage in tomfoolery, but it’s not long before playful behaviour turns primal.

Propelled by naturalistic performances and grainy cinematography that channels haze and horror in equal measure, Reptile is an engaging study on masculinity, machismo and the urges that lurk within.
