Get in Touch With Nature!

1972, Warner Bros., 109 min, USA, Dir: John Boorman

Director John Boorman fashions an indescribable odyssey of unexpected violence, endurance and transcendence as Jon Voight, Burt Reynolds, Ronny Cox and Ned Beatty are stalked by a scruffy gang of backwoods Neanderthals. The cinematography by Vilmos Zsigmond (MCCABE & MRS. MILLER, THE LONG GOODBYE, and winner of the 1998 ASC Lifetime Achievement Award) perfectly evokes an atmosphere of stark, pastoral beauty and mounting terror from novelist James Dickey’s pitch-perfect screenplay.

Take a Vacation!

1971, Drafthouse Films, 108 min, Dir: Ted Kotcheff

Among the films that kickstarted a new wave of Australian cinema in the 1970s, WAKE IN FRIGHT was M.I.A. for decades until this stunning HD restoration. Schoolteacher Gary Bond finds himself stranded in the Outback mining town of Bundanyabba, where Donald Pleasence and the other local drunkards soon reduce him to their primitive level. “WAKE IN FRIGHT is a deeply – and I mean deeply – unsettling and disturbing movie. I saw it when it premiered at Cannes in 1971, and it left me speechless. Visually, dramatically, atmospherically and psychologically, it's beautifully calibrated and it gets under your skin one encounter at a time.” - Martin Scorsese.

WAKE IN FRIGHT includes graphic footage of a government-sanctioned kangaroo hunt that may be disturbing to some viewers.
