Australian Genre Cinema: ‘Wake In Fright’ and ‘Snowtown Murders’ with Director Justin Kurzel

Ricky D had the pleasure of interviewing the director and co-writer of Snowtown (or The Snowtown Murders, as it’s now known in North America), Justin Kurzel, who happened to mention that 1971’s Wake In Fright as a standout Australian cult movie – so we thought, why not finally take it on? Along with the interview and our review of Ted Kotcheff’s offbeat classic, take a listen back to our review from late last year of The Snowtown Murders.
