Sleeping Dogs (1977)

Not just the movie that kickstarted the New Zealand filmmaking boom and gave the world Sam Neill, Sleeping Dogsis also a wildly entertaining and furiously political action flick which slowly morphs into a kiwi Rambo. Moves like a rollercoaster but rattles on the rails with an existential dread. Loved watching Neill’s beard slowly grow as the film goes on. Like that beard, the film is full of texture and grit. Hopefully Arrow’s new blu will mean this will no longer be so underseen

Watched on Arrow Academy blu-ray.
