Mystery Road opens this Thursday in cinemas across Australia. CJ Johnson interviews director Ivan Sen, producer David Jowsey, and offers his review of the film.
Ivan Sen’s films Beneath Clouds and Toomelah have been critical successes but very much art house releases playing to very limited audiences. Now, with Mystery Road, opening this Thursday, Sen tackles a genre picture, but with customary artistic panache and a great sense of place and character.
In this episode of Movieland, CJ Johnson talks to Sen about his film, Sen’s producer David Jowsey about where Sen’s career is headed now he’s dipping his toe into the mainstream, and ends with CJ’s review of the film itself.
