The Australian outback has served as forbidding territory in cinema where almost anything can happen, and in films as wide-ranging as "Wolf Creek," "The Proposition" and "Walkabout" the backdrops have been integral to the mood of the film.

The Hunter

The Australian outback has served as forbidding territory in cinema where almost anything can happen, and in films as wide-ranging as "Wolf Creek," "The Proposition" and "Walkabout" the backdrops have been integral to the mood of the film. However, in the thriller "The Hunter" it's the jungle where the unknown is lurking.

Directed by Daniel Nettheim, written by Alice Addison and based on the novel by author/filmmaker Julia Leigh ("Sleeping Beauty") the film stars Willem Dafoe who plays Martin, a mercenary sent from Europe by an anonymous biotech company to the wilderness on a dramatic hunt for the last Tasmanian tiger. The film played a handful of festivals last year, and in case it didn't quite make your radar, this exclusive three minute clip is a good preview of the mood and tone of the picture that was nominated for 14 Australian Film Institute Awards (it won for Best Cinematography and Best Score).

"The Hunter" is available On Demand right now, and it opens in limited release on April 6th.
