CHOP­PER

SBS ONE, Satur­day, 9.30pm, AV15+ ( 2000)

This pseu­do­bi­o­graph­i­cal look at one of the coun­try’s most no­to­ri­ous crim­i­nals, Mark “Chop­per” Read, is an ex­treme but re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Based on the late Read’s best- sell­ing books and meet­ings with the man him­self, young di­rec­tor and screen­writer An­drew Do­minik puts a com­plex spin on the myths be­hind Read’s vi­o­lent un­der­ground ac­tiv­i­ties in Mel­bourne and his time in Pen­tridge Prison. Eric Bana ( pic­tured) is bril­liant as the crim­i­nal who al­ter­nates be­tween com­posed un­easi­ness and sear­ing rage. Un­miss­able.
