Love this film, got mine in the post a few days back, looking forward to giving it a spin - bleak and harrowing yes, but an maazing, beautiful film none the less
also a great suprise headshot!

Great review, I haven't watched it in years, but it does stay with you.

I only discovered this release on the AVF last Blu purchase thread last night (as the slip cover didn't state UHD, I had assumed it was a BFI blu remaster), so its arriving today!

Always loved this film and very happy to see it get the 4K treatment from the excellent team at the BFI.

Speaking of nihilistic Aussie westerns, the recent Indicator release of Mad Dog Morgan is brilliant and both films would make a great double bill.

The picture quality is really lovely, beautifully shot, one of the night sky (navy blue sky) full of stars or lightening strikes in a stormy sky looks superb.
Sharp image (majority of the time), very subtle grain, thankfully looks like film.
Great to see John Hurt on screen again.
Put it on for a 10 min preview, watched it all + the new extras :)

Watched it last night, the 4k picture and sound are very good, missed this film the first time around somehow, its exactly how I like my westerns, gritty and real, if you liked unforgiven, open range, bone tomahawk you will enjoy this, a lot of excellent performances, especially John hurt, highly recommend it

Watched this again last night with my better half who had not seen it before.
Took a little persuasion, “what do you mean an Australian western”…but she loved it, still talking about it this morning.

Think this could easily be added to the likes of The Godfather and be an annual watch in our house.
