Back

AUSTRALIA | 97 minutes | 1978

An Australian couple heads out for a camping trip in an idyllic spot. They’re neurotic, egotistical urbanites, who can find nothing better to do than take out their frustrations on nature: over-the-top bug repellent, pollution, a hunting rifle and everyday sadism pile up until the environment fights back against the parasites. A favourite of Tarantino, Long Weekend is a masterpiece of the Ozploitation genre. Driven by unrelenting suspense, an unforgettably dreamlike production design and a love of gory details, Colin Eggleston’s metaphorical depiction of modern life rushing headlong toward self-destruction is as hard-hitting as ever.
