Writer-director David Michôd catches you in a vise and squeezes - hard. show more
A phenomenal debut feature with a terrific title, David Michôd's Animal Kingdom is both a study in Darwinian survival-in this case survival of the shrewdest-and a group portrait of ruthless predators in the underworld of Melbourne, Australia. show more
Like "The Square," the startling Down Under noir released a few months ago, Animal Kingdom explores the down and dirty side of human nature, fraught with greed, suspicion, and betrayal. show more
This is the best movie I've seen in years. My husband and I were simply mesmerized by the superb acting and storyline. Absolutely excellent and not to be missed!
We saw this film last night, but we didn't hear this film. Whoever was responsible for the sound in this film should be permanently barred from ever working on another movie. The loud noises were too loud and the soft speaking and whispering were inaudible. That coupled with the difficulty of understanding the Australian accent made for a miserable waste of time and money. Besides, what we were able to hear of the dialog wasn't all that good anyway.
Garbage!!! A total bore from down under. A wannabe Layer Cake. Throw this one in the trash can.
