    Apparently the murder rate is a bit lower than in the UK. Interesting that the Hounds of Love director chose the story because it was a way to make an impact on a limited budget and (in the main) a single location - maybe that's a major driver of the trend, talented directors from a relatively small film industry, but one with a good record of crossover to Hollywood, trying to get attention. It does seem that the country has an abnormal number of talented directors (and actors too?), but maybe I just see the good stuff.

    Wake in Fright is a good documentary account of Australia, of course.
