MYS­TERY ROAD ★★★★ Di­rected by Ivan Sen. Star­ring Aaron Ped­er­sen, Hugo Weav­ing, Ryan Kwan­ten, Tony Barry

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM -

To­ken in­dige­nous Aus­tralian cop Jay (Ped­er­sen) re­turns to the ru­ral Queens­land town where he grew up to in­ves­ti­gate the bru­tal killing of a teenage girl. He is of­fered lit­tle or no as­sis­tance from fel­low of­fi­cers, who smirk at him from cor­ners of the sta­tion. Jay’s in­quiries soon sug­gest that there’s some­thing even more trou­bling than ca­sual racism go­ing on. But will One God Cop be enough to un­tan­gle a knot of pros­ti­tu­tion, drugs, so­cial de­pri­va­tion, ’roo hunt­ing, wild dogs and cor­rup­tion? Su­pe­rior and taut po­lice pro­ce­dural. Club, IFI, Dublin, 118 min
