This 1998 metathriller, about Melbourne detectives investigating serial killings, makes reverent references to TV's Homicide: Life on the Street, which it rivals with the complexity of its characterizations as well as its evocative use of pop music and disorienting camera work. Hard yet vulnerable Detective Wilson (Belinda McClory) sublimates her horror at the grisly murders and her intense feelings for her partner into effective police work, despite the apparent apathy of her colleagues—including one detective whose opportunistic intimidation of petty criminals comes to seem almost justified by his pain and loneliness. Written and directed by Jon Hewitt; with John Brumpton. 88 min.
