I have a fascination about the psychology of real-crime, particularly serial killing. I recall once reading the full account of the infamous Bodies In The Barrels murders and of all the grisly things I have read in my life, those details turned my stomach and horrified me the most. Information like that cannot be unread. Anyone over 30 living in Australia remembers this case and it remains taboo in many circles. And so to the film, Snowtown. This is a monumentally bleak movie-going experience. The relationships of all involved in the crime is explored with a veracious honesty and unflinching realism that results in an uncomfortable and relentless sitting. Thankfully not all of the crimes are depicted but those which are are graphic, upsetting and repulsive. The performances are amongst the best I've seen in years. Daniel Henshall who played John Bunting delivers the most menacing and terrifying character I can recall. I challenge you to find a better performance in recent years. But despite it's horrors, Snowtown is a brilliant film. Only see it if you know what you are up for and be prepared for it to stick in your memory. You wont forget it and may not want to revisit it again... incredible.
