A couple of friends have mentioned this movie lately so I thought I ought to check it out. Snowtown is based on a true story about the Snowtown Murders that took place in South Australia in the 90's. I usually don't get very emotionally affected by movies, but this one took its grip on me with its unvarnished and brutal portrayal of the people involved in the murders. At the same time as I got my stomach in knots, I was also taken by the great acting and the beautiful craftwork that made this film one of the most interesting ones I've seen in quite a while. See it, but remember, it's not a feelgood movie.
