AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Gruesome and hilarious, Kill Me Three Times is a blackly comic neo-noir that unfolds in an Australian surfing town under a blinding sun — all the better to illuminate its cleverly designed network of malfeasance.

'A dental surgeon (Sullivan Stapleton) with gambling debts and a conniving spouse (Teresa Palmer), a hunky gas jockey (Luke Hemsworth) looking to skip town with his secret lover, a corrupt cop (Bryan Brown), a motel proprietor (Callan Mulvey) who's become excessively proprietary over his wife: each of these characters has a scheme to realize, and each scheme requires the elimination of the same woman (Alice Braga) — though she seems to have a scheme of her own. Involved in all these sordid transactions is one Mister Wolfe (Simon Pegg), a seasoned professional in the practice of snooping and, for the right price, murder.' (Production summary)
