Dead Heart

Film, Thrillers

Time Out says

When a young Aborigine is found dead in a police cell, the local cop (Brown, who also produced) finds that his rule-bending ways of keeping the peace in a remote Aboriginal settlement are no longer sufficient to prevent racial conflict and violence. Not without appeal as a culture-clash thriller, this suffers from an occasional lack of narrative clarity, perhaps inevitably given the magical beliefs held by the older Aborigines whose notions of justice fuel the plot. That said, there are nice touches here (notably some scenes featuring white liberal documentarists), and strong performances from Brown and Milliken.
