Australian Crime Dramas

I've seen some comparisons to The Godfather, Goodfellas, and works by the Coen Brothers. I wouldn't go that far, but both of these films are solid.(Animal Kingdom being the better of the two)

The Square (Nash Edgerton, 2008) | Trailer

Animal Kingdom (David Michod, 2010) | Trailer

Some good films down under.

I've always had a soft spot for Aussie stuff because we grew up with tons of Antipodean soaps here in the UK.

Underbelly is/was(?) a pretty good Aussie tv show based on the gang wars in Melborne during the nineties.

Cool, will see if I can dig that show up.

Filmspotting recently did a top 5 on Aussie films, and it peeked my interest a little.
