It’s Australian New Wave cinema month on The Last New Wave, and what better way to kick it off than with one of the greatest Australian films produced – Ted Kotcheff’s Wake in Fright. Not only is it one of the best films Australia has ever produced, it also is one of the great horror films – providing a scorching assessment of outback Australia.
