You saw it farmer!
And you watched it right through!
Well done! And without the services of a translator, or anything!
To tell the truth, I was a bit disappointed by Animal Kingdom
, after all the hype in the local media. If you liked it (& I'm not sure "like" is the appropriate word) a much better Oz film of the same genre is The Boys
, from a few years back. But be warned, this film could lead to depression! I'm kind of serious here ...
Yes, a very dysfunctional family (in Animal Kingdom
) , I agree. But based on actual examples of real crime families, right under our very noses. In Melbourne, especially. Those criminal matriarchs are very real people (believe it or not) , ruling the roost over their criminal offspring & various hangers on. We've seen them in the court rooms, on the news. Pretty creepy.
But then, you can add a dysfunctional/corrupt police force into the mix & you'd understand the whole picture & why these criminal families got away with so much. There was not much which was "admirable" about them. Dumb & ruthless would describe them fairly accurately.
One of these days I'm going to watch The Sopranos
(the whole series, right through!) but right now it is such a relief to not be watching the real life characters (that our local crime movies were based on) on the news anymore ... so later
, I think!
