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.

Something special. Excellent performances, and the blending of indigenous culture with the 70s urban environment is interesting stuff
You bloody little ripper 👍
Saw this a few years ago (and when it was first released).Great Aussie horror flick.One of the best.
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.
