What’s the word on this film? Any good? Worth picking up?
Looks pretty violent…
Stars Dennis Hopper and won the award for best Western at Cannes Film Festival in May 1976
MAD Dog Morgan, written and directed by Philippe Mora, is an idiosyncratic, intriguing, vividly atmospheric example of 1970s Australian cinema. Mora persuaded Dennis Hopper to play real-life bushranger Dan Morgan, who is depicted as a man caught up in the brutality of frontier life on the goldfields, an outsider from the moment he comes to the aid of a Chinese man attacked by a mob. David Gulpilil is the Aboriginal man with whom he forms a close alliance, and who helps him escape the forces of the law. Hopper was famously out of control and over the top at the time of filming, although he turned in a striking performance, in a movie that echoes the increasingly troubled, chaotic, rampaging state of mind of its central character.
