Director Rowan Woods and his collaborators have crafted a totallyabsorbing urban drama about complex homosapiens whose lives have beencompromised by drugs and various addictions.

Cate Blanchett is Tracy, the film's lynch-pin, a Western suburbs girlwhose ambitions to get ahead are thwarted by financial and personalskeletons from her past.

Scribe Jacqueline Perske manipulates a tangled web of charactersranging from Sam Neil's retiring drug baron Brad to Hugo Weaving'sfailed yuppie junkie Lionel. Noni Hazlehurst, in a rivetingperformance, plays family matriarch Janelle, a woman so crippled byregret and betrayal, she can hardly stand upright.

The tone is a few degrees lighter than Woods' brilliant "The Boys" andthe Cabramatta milieu is broader, but this is still a beautifullybalanced character piece with top notch performances and a restrainedthird act that avoids the usual clichés.

Supporting turns by Susie Porter (as Jenny) and Joel Tobeck (as Moss)are exceptional.

Though some climactic clarity might have been helpful, this is,nevertheless, emotionally graphic and pictorially intense cinema.

Suburbia struggles with smackReviewed bymatthewdenbyVote: 7/10

An interesting portrayal of how heroin addiction impacts a cross section of people in suburban Sydney. The "little fish" in the multi-million dollar heroin trade swim around in circles, trying to escape the lives they are stuck with ? some with more success than others. Tracy (Cate Blanchett) lives with the legacy of her former addiction, faced with temptation to fall back to her old ways, and constantly hitting a brick wall in her attempts to start her own business and escape her stagnant existence. Blanchett is, of course, strong in her portrayal, which was apparently inspired by her real-life interviews with addicts. The moment when she is tempted to return to her old ways is genuinely disturbing. Noni Hazelhurst is particularly excellent as tormented mum Janelle, desperate to keep her family from sinking, once again, into the mire. Hugo Weaving is convincing in his role has a drug-addled former football hero. His strong performance is boosted by his startling physical transformation. Watch out for Dustin Nguyen, who you might remember from '80s teen cop show 21 Jump Street. His accent is a little confused, which we can probably write off as the result of his character's multi-national background. Although the pic meanders a bit to begin with, taking some time to build up pace, it's a generally satisfying exploration of the underside of life in Sydney suburbia. Some sub-plots work much better than others, but the film is well worth a look, especially if you are a fan of the talented cast who generally shine here.

It's a disturbingly honest film portraying a hauntingly familiar lifeand how it is affected by the seamy drug/underworld of Sydney's Asiancommunity. That's not to say that only the Asian community has drug andunderworld problems, but it makes for an interesting and colourfulbackdrop for a complicated but compelling story. In fact, even now twohours after we left the cinema, I'm still mildly troubled by theseeming hopelessness of the confused lives portrayed. It was so real,so close to the bone. The characters could easily be you, or me. Asanother reviewer stated:

"There's no light-the tunnel goes on forever." A pretty accurateassessment.

I've heard it said that for Blanchett and Weaving their performancesrank as personal bests, but I'm not all that sure I'd go that far withWeavings. He was good, very, very good as the broken-down drug-riddenex-football star but Blanchett's performance as the reformed addictdesperately trying to get her life together, to set up her own businessand actually resurrect something from the pathetic life she has, wasabsolutely amazing. Her character is both complex and simplistic all atonce. You can detest and love her, feel sympathy and disdain and findby movie's end you're aware that she could so easily be you.

Included in the cast as perennials the likes of Noni Hazlehurst, LisaMcCune and Sam Neill all played sound parts but not a patch on theleads. The balance of the cast are movie journeymen/women who have manyand varied backgrounds. None were overly outstanding, although I foundthe character of Jonny, Blanchett's former boyfriend played by DustinNguyen to be quite well done. He disgusted me for what he was and whathe wanted to be and that's the actors art.

Go and see this flick. It's an outstanding example of the Australianfilm industry's capabilities. I rate it 8 out of 10.
