Goldstone [2016]

This is a tidy little noir set in a gold-mining town in Queensland. It is quite conventional, in that it has most of the classic plot points and character archetypes. It is beautifully shot, well-acted, well-scripted, with an evocative score, which is almost all down directly to the Director, who did all of those things, a virtual one-man movie industry. In particular, the cinematography of the Outback was breathtaking.

There was something surprisingly suitable about the vastness of the Australian outback to the alienated feel of noir and the tendrils of corruption. I liked this film a lot, at the time of viewing it was probably my favourite film from TIFF 2016.
