Time Out says

An Aussie male duo, one redneck dropout white, the other a young black, steal a car and joyride their way across the outback of New South Wales before coming to the inevitable end of all good movie outlaws. Very much the result of a collaborative tension between director Noyce and his black lead actor (Foley), Backroads is an outstanding road movie to stand beside the very best American examples of the genre. Often brilliantly funny, it manages to be both completely commercial and a scathing depiction of one of the world's most racist societies.
