* ShownTheirWork: According to the other [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Proposition Wiki]]: "As noted in behind-the-scenes features included on The Proposition DVD, the film is regarded as uncommonly accurate in depicting indigenous Australian culture of the late 1800s, and when filming in the outback, the cast and crew took great pains to follow the advice of indigenous consultants. In an interview included on the DVD, [Tom E.] Lewis even compares the depiction of indigenous cultures in The Proposition to the landmark film ''The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith'' (1978)."

* PunchClockVillain: The third member of Arthur's gang, Two-Bob, is a hard to hate: he is a resourceful and {{Badass}} aborigine who just wants his land back, and is notably absent for Arthur and Sam's big MoralEventHorizon.

2005 Western, set in 1880s Australia. Directed by ''John Hillcoat,'' with a screenplay by rock star Music/NickCave. Cave and his bandmate Warren Ellis also wrote the soundtrack. It's really good. Cave described it as a story full of beautiful sadness and longing, intercut with moments of intense violence.

Here's a rundown of the plot: Charlie Burns (Creator/GuyPearce) and his younger, mentally retarded brother Mikey are Irish criminals in Australia. After a shootout in a brothel, they are both arrested and imprisoned. During the interrogation, Cpt. Stanley (Creator/RayWinstone) gives Charlie the titular proposition: track down and kill the oldest Burns brother, Arthur (Creator/DannyHuston, son of Creator/JohnHuston and half-brother of Creator/{{Anjelica|Huston}}), and both Charlie and Mikey will be released. Charlie is forced to choose which brother will die - the mentally retarded and innocent child, or the protective big brother and father figure. Until then, poor Mikey will remain in the Banyon Jail, and if the job is not done by Christmas Day, Mikey will be hanged and the manhunt for Charlie and Arthur will resume.
