“In Ted Kotcheff’s Conradian vision of macho rituals, revelations, and depredations, the Outback becomes as much of a self-testing limbo as the indigenous Mars photographed by Nicolas Roeg that same year in Walkabout… At its center is a searing marathon of beer pounding, manic cackling, and kangaroo slaughtering, led by an alcoholic doctor (an unaccountably sybaritic Donald Pleasance) who declares that ‘discontent is a luxury of the well-to-do’… Shot with a feverish feeling for heat and madness that’s worthy of Borges.”
Fernando F. Corce, Slant Magazine
