Razorback – 1984 – Russell Mulcahy – The Last New Wave


On the last of the look at the Australian New Wave series, Andrew is joined by artist Simon Sherry to discuss Russell Mulcahy’s directorial debut – Razorback – aka the film with the giant pig. In this episode we not only touch on the film itself, but then we go on to discuss at length some of the great forgotten Australian films that are crying out for DVD releases.

Outside of creating some great art, Simon also works for Umbrella Entertainment – the place where films like Razorback find a home on physical release.

Andrew has been a film lover all of his life. For a while now he's been talking about how great films are and usually that's been directly to his wife, Bernadette. Now with AB Film Review everyone else in the world can listen to what Andrew has to say to his wife. Bernadette grew up renting videos from a Plains Video. She mostly hired out Cry Baby and wore the tape thin learning the lines to the John Waters classic. After a series of arguments in the car ride home with her husband, Andrew, the two decided to record their arguments and launch them into the world for everyone to listen to.
