      Audience Member such as great, disturbing but wonderful film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member the score from Severed Heads is outstanding, but not too distant from a great set of performances from some great talent. Imagine if you had to face your fears, through the recitation and repetition of your dayjob, only to have the reality of disease kick in... reminds me of Bliss :) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Surprisingly really good - sure Samuel Johnson doesnt have the most film-ogenic face, but hell - this was actually kinda funny, and really strange - Plus its always good to see Jessica Napier get up in some local cinema. Shame about the ending otherwise it wouldve got 4 stars. What a great concept for a film - what you study is what you litterally becoming - sounds like what happens in real life. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member A brilliantly under rated film.. Very dark, but quirky and strangely uplifting :-) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member An Australian classic in my book but it really flopped horribly. Soundtrack by Severed Heads. Perfect! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member possibly shittier then titanic Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
