Post So you guys should see Wake In Fright now
Now that the long thought lost Australian classic Wake In Fright (1971) has finally made its way to Blu-ray and DVD in the USA, I'd highly recommend everyone to seek it out. I've harped on about it before, but now that it's finally getting its first major release outside of Australia, it's high time this film starts getting some of the recognition it deserves.

In the 3.5 star review from Roger Ebert:
Roger Ebert wrote:
"Wake in Fright" is a film made in Australia in 1971 and almost lost forever. It's not dated. It is powerful, genuinely shocking and rather amazing. It comes billed as a "horror film" and contains a great deal of horror, but all of the horror is human and brutally realistic.


Starring Gary Bond, Donald Pleasence, Jack Thompson and directed by Ted Kotcheff of First Blood fame.

Excellent. I've been interested in seeing this for awhile now. It actually played for about a week at a theater close to me, but for some reason I completely spaced it.
