Gold­stone (M) Ivan Sen’s se­quel to Mys­tery Road (2013) again fea­tures Abo­rig­i­nal de­tec­tive Jay Swan (the ex­cel­lent Aaron Ped­er­sen) in a grip­ping out­back thriller. Sent to in­ves­ti­gate the dis­ap­pear­ance of a young Chi­nese woman, Swan dis­cov­ers a small com­mu­nity that has been cor­rupted by the ad­ja­cent min­ing com­pany, and he joins forces with a lo­cal cop (Alex Rus­sell, also ex­cel­lent) to put things right. Stun­ningly pho­tographed, the film is a tri­fle un­sub­tle but filled with ten­sion and anger. A strong cast in­cludes the great David Gulpilil, Tom E. Lewis, David Wen­ham and Jacki Weaver as the town­ship’s mayor.
