High Coun­try,

Noon, GEM PG. 1983. Stodgy out­doors drama about cat­tle­men in the high coun­try of Vic­to­ria is a dis­tant cousin to The Man From Snowy River, though from the poor side of the fam­ily. Still, the lo­ca­tion pho­tog­ra­phy’s good. John Wa­ters, Si­mone Buchanan.

Rein­deer Games, GO, 9.30pm

M. 2000. Re­leased from jail, petty crook Ben Af­fleck takes up with his ex-cell­mate’s girl­friend, un­aware she’s part of a gang which wants to use his skills in a rob­bery. The con­vo­luted plot rapidly sours even – with di­rec­tor John Franken­heimer at the helm – and Af­fleck makes a light­weight hero play­ing op­po­site Char­l­ize Theron.

Tears For Sale

SBS2, 9.40pm, M. 2008. Very odd, de­mented, yet quite mag­netic fairy­tale set in a Ser­bian vil­lage, where sis­ters Kata­rina Radi­vo­je­vic and Sonja Ko­lacaric man­age to kill the only man. Or­dered out to find at least an­other el­i­gi­ble man, they meet two on the road and de­cide to keep them for them­selves. How­ever, fate in­ter­venes and takes a hand. May be your only chance to watch graphic sex tak­ing place in a hearse.
