BacklashAustralian filmmaker Bill Bennett’s second feature follows two Sydney police officers (David Argue and Gia Carides) as they escort to trial a beautiful young aborigine (Lydia Miller) who’s accused of killing her employer by castrating him with garden shears. Made on a minuscule budget and with improvised dialogue, this is the feature that introduced Bennett to an international audience (1986). (JR)
