TIFF 2014: Cut Snake

Posted by Brandy Dean September 5, 2014 0 Comment 1099 views

Full of vintage cars, tight polyester shirts, and a kick ass ’70s soundtrack, Cut Snake from director Tony Ayres is a sizzling film noir from Down Under. Set in 1973, the films centers around Sparra (Alex Russell), an ex-con desperate to maintain his now simple life with fiancee Paula (Jessica De Gouw). But as every film noir aficionado knows, when a former cell mate (Pommie, played by Sullivan Stapleton) blows into town the reformed life gets a lot more complicated.

Cut Snake is more than a taut film noir, though it is that as well. Anchored by three superb lead performances and a blind-siding twist at the halfway mark, it’s a definite must see for this year’s festival.

More than a nifty set piece,
