AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'First things first. Hounds of Love, a devilishly potent new Australian film from first-time writer-director Ben Young, is a little masterpiece of horror. It is most definitely not for the squeamish — not that Young wallows in gore, because in fact he is reasonably discreet in depicting the events that unfold. Nevertheless his achievement is to create an environment that is totally, devastatingly believable, and that makes what happens even more confronting than it might otherwise have been.' (Introduction)


  • Also discusses the film 20th Century Women by Mike Mills.
