A darkly humorous search for love, meaning and bathroom solitude. Faithful to the cult novel by John Birmingham upon which it is based, the film follows Danny (Noah Taylor) through a series of shared housing experiences in a succession of cities on the east coast of Australia. Together these vignettes form a forceful, sometimes turbulent narrative that leaves the viewer entertained, exhausted and surprisingly reflective.

    "Driven by absurdist humor, random off-the-wall moments of originality and a generally ararchic tone, it mixes the heightened silliness of youth cinema with a more studied, film-literate approach. ...those who like their cinema on the edge should find a lot to enjoy here."
    Erin Free, The Hollywood Reporter
  • Highest Rating
    "This carousel ride of bizarre characters and out-of-control situations [becomes] a reasonably satisfying whole."
    David Rooney, Variety
