“Will ya have a drink, mate?” Ted Kotcheff (First Blood) offers a sweaty, beer-soaked, outsider vision of the Australian outback that pushes the idea of aggressive hospitality to its nerve-breaking edges. Gary Bond stars as an urbane schoolteacher who arrives in the rough mining town of Bundanyabba and ends up going on a days-long, self-destructive bender thanks to the unrelenting generosity of the town locals (including Donald Pleasence). Featuring outlandish psychedelic sequences, documentary footage of a brutal kangaroo hunt, and a menacing, dehydrated visual palette, Wake in Fright is a visceral and long-overlooked gem of the Australian New Wave that unravels like a feverish nightmare.
