With Guy Pearce as the only recognisable actor for most western audiences, the film has garnered a great deal of critical acclaim for its script, acting and cinematography (and won the Sundance Grand Jury prize for drama) despite a meagre budget of only $5 million. Notable for its gritty, oppressive atmosphere and distinctly Australian characters and black sense of humour.

* SoundtrackDissonance: Although there's eerie music percolating much of the film, the disturbing scene in which Pope is staring at Nicky has Air Supply's ''I'm All Out of Love'' playing on the TV, and a long, dirge-like drone played over the top of it.

* GreyAndGrayMorality: Joshua seems to have been a crook before he started living with the rest of the Cody clan. The Codys aren't violent until the police execute one of their close friends. Many of the cops are either corrupt or cowardly.

Many of the cops are either corrupt or cowardly. Det. Leckie might be the only morally "white" character in the film, and even he's tinged a little grey (his objective after all being to turn Josh against his own family).
