Directed By Nash Edgerton
Produced By Blue Tongue
Made In Australia

This is a film that has been on SotW’s radar for a while. A 2008 Sundance online offering, it was posted to the net even before that, thanks to the progressive views of director Nash Edgerton and the folks at Blue Tongue—home incidentally of 2008 fave I Love Sarah Jane.

It has been extremely popular, but I sat on posting it because something about the film didn’t sit with me right. It’s for sure a superior film, I just think I loved everything about it except the parts that I assume everyone loves. ^_^

Good thing I waited I suppose, because MarBelle scored an interview with, and a real cool vfx vid from Mr. Edgerton for his own site, which adds a little bit of illumination to a key sequence—forcefully overcoming any reservations on my part to recommend.
