“Tony McNamara has conjured an instant cult classic,
as funny as any Australian film in recent memory. McNamara arms his script
with witty barbs and aided by some fine comic performances from a splendid
cast. If he never acts again, Lee can be assured of his place in cinemas
pantheon of great comic performances.
“The script is full of Aussie humour – smart, absurd, blackly
hilarious and astute…a little beauty.”
“an unexpected treat “
"A quirky and endearing coming-of-age tale from Australia, with
charming performances and an hilariously absurd script. Ben Lee is superb
as Placid Lake, desperate to rid himself of his pesky virginity. Miranda
Richardson is terrific as his stoner mum."
This week's best films: THE RAGE IN PLACID LAKE - “lots
of sharp, saucy humour and a good cast.”
“A film that’s quite a joy to behold.“
“Charming and funny low budget Australian movie that’s
a joy from beginning to end with wonderful performances from Lee
and Byrne. A gem of an Oz movie.”

Australian brand of bright, tone-setting optimism."

some great moments.”
“sharp, satirical story “

DYNAMITE and DONNIE DARKO”

like this hip comedy that’s well worth a look”

“a funny and thoroughly entertaining time is had by all “
