Samson and Delilah is the film that put director Warwick Thornton on the map. Harrowing and deeply affecting, Thornton doesn’t hold back in laying bare the brutal realities of the cultural divide still evident in Australia, as we watch the eponymous Aboriginal couple trying to navigate a harsh and unforgiving world. One of the most remarkable Australian films of this century.
Dir. Warwick Thornton, Australia, 2009, 97 minutes.
