Goofs

The train carriage in which the massacre occurs is halfway down the train. One of the victims is a man in an electric wheelchair. Because there is a gap between train and platform on Melbourne's train system people in electric wheelchairs must board the train in the front carriage, where the driver can assist by placing a ramp between the train and platform.

Quotes

Constable Graham McGahan: I got this theory about that. You know, what I read was, heaven or hell, is whatever you're thinking that second between your body dying and your brain dying. Your regrets, who you loved, who loved you. What you remember of your life, that's the eternity everyone's talking about. So, if you are a fuckwit, then... when you die, in that ten seconds between your brain and your body dying, your brain remembers all the time you were a fuckwit - over and over again... until it feels like this ...

A fine film.
18 June 2007 | by sara_tunnySee all my reviews

I was taken by surprise by how good this film was.

Everyone's performance fit perfectly within the world of the film. Naturalistic, but totally involving. Brendan Cowell was beautifully sympathetic in the lead role.

The director (Matthew Saville) should be commended for being able to achieve what he has for his first feature. It's a rare thing to see an Australian film so in control of what it's doing. And so moving by it's finish.

I look forward to seeing it again.

9 out of Ten.
