Watch the Sunset

Watch the Sunset (Tristan Barr, Michael Gosden, 2017) wr. Tristan Barr, Michael Gosden; Tristan Barr, Mitchell Booth, Catherine Dawson; Michael Gosden; bikie; 79 min.

Synopsis: Danny Biaro, an ex-member of outlaw bikie gang, is tortured by the choices of his drug involved past that led to the disintegration of his family. Now longing to be reunited with Sally and their daughter Joey, he travels into the regional town of Kerang. After witnessing the brutal abuse of Charis at a club, a young girl that bears a haunting resemblance to Sally, Danny must race against the clock before the bikie gang reaches his estranged family.

The single take set-up legendary director Alfred Hitchcock utilized in Rope (1948) works well in Watch the Sunset (2017): a lean, effective, if familiar and routinely characterized, crime saga. Andrew Buckner.
