Sen's Mystery Road has been quite heavily buzzed and I wish I was at the Sydney Film Festival see its premiere (it is the opening night selection). I wasn't too keen on Toomelah, the film he made between Dreamland and Mystery Road, and I'm super keen to see what he does with the genre elements and that wonderful cast. Aaron Pedersen, Hugo Weaving, Ryan Kwanten (who coincidentally starred in Red Hill), Jack Thompson, David Field, Tom Barry, Robert Mammone, Roy Billing, Bruce Spence, and even the seemingly long lost Zoe Carides make up a wonderful cast (most of which are barely glimpsed or not at all in the trailer). Not just them, but there's also a Blue Heelers reunion with Tasma Walton and Damian Walshe-Howling. I wonder if local press will at all pick up on that or if it's just my Blue Heelers loving self who's excited for that.
