Snowtown (2011)

Directed by: Justin Kurzel
Country: Australia

Plot: Based on true events, 16 year-old Jamie falls in with his mother's new boyfriend and his crowd of self-appointed neighborhood watchmen, a relationship that leads to a spree of torture and murder.
Quick comment: Another case to be analyzed in psychology – the story of the Australia’s worst serial killer is bleak and cold. Daniel Henshall (winner of 4 international awards) plays magnificently well the role of John Bunting, a confident and absolute ruling man who fancied himself as a superior being. I don’t feel like visiting Snowtown after watching this! An hypnotic and scary independent film.
Relevant awards: special mention (Cannes).
