An intelligent, extremely violent western set in the Australian outback of the mid-1800s. Hopper is a prospector who can't make a living at gold hunting, so he turns to crime. He's captured and spends six years in prison. Upon his release he meets Gulpilil, a young Aborigine, and together

they become infamous outlaws in New South Wales. Hopper slowly descends into self-destructive ways and finally walks into a hail of bullets after realizing that his hideout is surrounded. His performance is excellent, showing disturbing character changes with great subtlety. The direction captures

the contrast between the hatefulness of the man and the beauty of the vast landscapes that surround him. The violence is particularly harsh, though carefully created. Gulpilil is good in support; he also did fine work in such films as THE LAST WAVE (1977) and WALKABOUT (1971).
