Wake In Fright (1971) an amazing Australian film. Historic. Celebrating all that is weird and strange about this great land of ours. A cult classic now and a personal favourite. You need to watch this film to restore your faith in Australian film.

Gary Bond, Donald Pleasence, and Chips Rafferty you will never forget after this film.


NOTE: Sadly, Gary Bond who plays John Grant (lead role) died of AIDS. Chips Rafferty, died the same year the film was released.

If you want to see a film that pushes boundaries in terms of race and class watch Blazing Saddles (1974). It presents long standing discrimination with self deprecating humour, so it makes them so much more palatable. You won’t find a film like this in mainstream cinema anymore. Mostly because of today’s political correctness and it seems that writers today dumb things down for audiences to much. 

If anything you should be watching this film for the friendship / bromance between Cleavon Little and Gene Wilder.

P.S Mel Brooks has his pants down in one scene. Lastly, don’t you just love this still?
