Cunnamulla, 800 kilometres west of Brisbane, is the end of the railway line. In the months leading up to a scorching Christmas in the bush, there's a lot more going on than the annual lizard race.
"An amazing, jaw dropping excursion into territory which may not be pretty but is dreadfully real."
--Richard Kuipers, Urban Cinefile
"Certain to provoke controversy, Cunnamulla is arguably Dennis O'Rouke's most powerful and subversive work... a vivid, disturbing, unforgettable portrait."
Andrew Urban, Urban Cinefile
"Well-made...O'Rourke depicts the title Queensland town as a place peopled entirely by characters who are desperately marginalized or terrifyingly reactionary...well-constructed."
"O'Rourke's tour-de-force portrait of the wacky, endearing, sometimes-heartbreaking people living in a small town of Queensland."
