    Novel?

    Can't believe that this film is actually based on a novel.

    Going to track it down (eventually).

    Being Australian, I get serious case of 'cultural cringe' when watching Razorback. That said, there is something about Razorback - most likely the film's brilliant visual style - that compels me to watch every couple of years.

    Thanks for that.

        You are right, Australia has produced some brilliant films - Mad Max 1 & 2, Gallipoli, Breaker Morant, Picnic At Hanging Rock, Ghosts Of The Civil Dead, the Year My Voice Broke, etc, etc. More than a few classics. However, in my opinion most of these films come from the late 1970s and early to mid 1980s (e.g. Razorback).

        I could probably count on 2 hands the number of "great" films Oz has produced over the last 10 to 20 years - The Proposition, Lantana, Wolf Creek, Shine, need some help now...

          Yeah, Australia makes some... insane film. As you can see from my recent views in the sig, I've taken a few Ozzies on lately.

          Don't forget about Bad Boy Bubby, Thirst, Body Melt, Pearls Before Swine, Patrick, and Long Weekend.

          I've got a wishlist somewheres with more of those obscure title names...

          I should watch Razorback again. Looking back at my post on the first page - makes me wanna pop it in the DVD player.

            One of my all time favorite critter flicks. It's just got a feel to it that makes it stand alone from a lot of the other films in it's league....visuals, soundtrack and of course the setting.
            It's only been a coupla months since I last watched it.
