It's a bloody relief.
On one level it is quite an ambitious sprawling narrative.
It's a film about the pull of the past and the fact that whether you're a rehabilitating heroin addict or an ageing rugby league footballer or even a criminal kingpin, you have to let go of the past in order to live the present.
I am inspired by movies with distinctive directorial signatures that boldly underscore the writing.
I want a film [that doesn't do that], that offers real hope and offers a realistic reflection of who we are and how we behave and still rocks you and moves you like cinema should.
