Prompted by Lord 16’s complaint about ATAR English film studies: “I’m so sick of watching Australian films. They’re always just a bunch of bogans getting drunk and ‘discovering national identity’…”, and the fact that Luscious was off in Perth for the weekend, leaving us with chips, and the DVD player, and cool drink, and honestly, what are you gonna do?…… it clearly behooved the former film student Dad to initiate the current film student boy — who can still say that despite having seen Dark City and all the Mad Max films — in the ways of Australian films that he hasn’t already seen that aren’t filmed through an orange filter…

To whit: The Cars That Ate Paris, the 2006 adaptation of Macbeth, and Undead. Because nobody should ever have to watch Lantana.
