The Last Wave

The Last Wave

Directed by Peter Weir

When lawyer David Burton is assigned a case to defend a group of indigenous Australian men, he is unprepared for the nightmares and dreamscapes ahead. Accused of murdering one of their own, the men stand trial amidst suspicious circumstances and, as Burton becomes plagued by unsettling visions, he is drawn to the mysterious Chris Lee for answers to his torment. As the erratic climate turns dangerous, Burton senses a greater power at play.

A Sydney lawyer defends five Aboriginal Persons in a ritualized taboo murder and in the process learns disturbing things about himself and premonitions.

Cast: Richard Chamberlain, Olivia Hamnett, David Gulpilil

Something special. Excellent performances, and the blending of indigenous culture with the 70s urban environment is interesting stuff

Discovered this eerie and obscure movie years ago when I read that S.T Joshi, the world’s foremost H.P. Lovecraft scholar said that this was his favourite mythos movie.
