Set in Melbourne Animal Kingdom is rivetting at its best

pipandco_animalkingdon_100707_02

Animal Kingdom is a gritty Australian crime thriller written and directed by David Michôd. The film stars Ben Mendelsohn, Joel Edgerton, Guy Pearce, Luke Ford, Sullivan Stapleton (pictured), Jacki Weaver (pictured) and James Frecheville.

The drama revolves around a criminal family set in Melbourne’s underworld. The film is based on the real events of the Walsh Street police shootings that occurred in Melbourne in 1988.

The sound, art direction, cinematography set a building and brooding backdrop for its players to fall apart and slide into the abyss. It’s an Australian film that creates it’s own set of local clichés, see it on the big screen if you are not faint hearted.

The ultra cheese tune – All out of love by Air Supply, is given a wonderful new context. Along with Mental as Anything’s Berserk Warriors. These tunes are a fantastic late night ballads for friends under the influence of a generous tipple.

Animal Kingdom is in limited release across Australia since June 6, see it soon.

The new year’s plans are well in place, people were assembling and reveling, yet the weather had other plans. After a hot spell of two to three days, one angry cool change over ran Melbourne from the South West with unrelenting determination.

Are designers exclusive to pushing boundaries?

pipandco_noborders_09022001

On the daily walk to the studio, one is often confronted with a raft of living things, exceeding boundaries and creating new expressions. It is a natural process to question conventions.

Who said to this plum tree that property boundaries need to be respected?
