Your appreciation of this Australian horror movie will depend on whether you think its artistry justifies its unrelenting ugliness.
Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader  full review
The film is a chilling study of an evil, dominant personality and his victims.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
Overlong and grim to the point where some scenes are virtually unwatchable...
Lou Lumenick, New York Post  full review
An impressive but exceptionally disturbing feature debut from Australian director Justin Kurzel that pushes the new wave of Aussie crime films up a notch.
Andrew O'Hehir,  full review
This distressing infiltration of a family of young boys by a charismatic psychopath rewards with a stylistic talent that feels entirely new.
Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times  full review
A dull thriller of ultra-bleak withholding.
Karina Longworth, Village Voice  full review
The result is a movie that can be admired in many respects from a distance but is progressively less emotionally engaging.
Richard Kuipers, Variety  full review
A well-made but hard-to-watch portrait of Australia's worst serial killer.
