Cut Snake is the latest feature from Australian director Tony Ayers. I enjoyed his 2002 feature 'Walking on Water', and thought he was one to watch. Weaving between single dramas, mini series and feature films, Tony's latest Cut Snake is of interest for his name, and secondly for that of leading man Sullivan Stapleton. An actor on the rise, Sullivan has also been carving out a name for himself across different mediums, and he makes the most of his leading status, piercing the lens with his brooding frame and affect. It is at times a bold and shocking performance; one that elevates him, rightfully to leading status in this country. Alex Russell and Jessica De Gouw were both discoveries for me, and the former emerges with the more fleshed out and compelling character. It is beautifully designed and directed and an interesting interplay of genres and characterizations.

The Reviews for Cut Snake (2015) 720p
Crime and characters explored in 1970's Australia.Reviewed bydavid-rector-85092Vote: 8/10
Performances keep the tension building toward an incendiary climax.
Cut Snake is an intense film with very tense moments; even when the core of the story is about a homosexual relationship, it only shows what's absolutely necessary to convey the intensity of the emotions boiling in its characters, without resorting to excessive nudity, or scenes that are 'too sexual' or distasteful, the characters are very believable and well developed, the pacing is just right, and the acting is excellent, especially the part played by Sullivan Stapleton, he did an amazing job at bringing his character (Pommie) to life.
This is an excellent film but definitely not for everybody, if you're planning on watching this film, do so with an open mind.
