Death in Brunswick (Silver Screen)

A riotous rollercoaster of murder and mayhem set in multicultural inner Melbourne. This 1990 black comedy-thriller stars Sam Neill as Carl, a fortyish no-hoper whose takes a job as a cook in a seedy nightclub to escape his cantankerous mother. A flirtation with Greek-Australian barmaid Sophie (Zoe Carides) lands Carl on the wrong side of a vicious bouncer. If that wasn’t enough when Carl is attacked by his drug-dealing Turkish kitchenhand, Carl accidentally sparks a deepening gangland feud. Best mate Dave (John Clarke) is soon employed as Carl's protector - and gravedigger - as a band of cutthroats block Carl's path to his sweetheart.
