|Kiss or Kill|
Bill Bennett's revisionist road movie has sexy Nikki (Frances O'Connor) and greaser Al (Matt Day) as lovers-on-the-lam, fleeing across the Nullarbor Plain when their latest scam goes horribly wrong.
Pursued by two cops (Chris Haywood and Andrew Gilbert) and the venomous ex-footballer child molester Zipper Doyle (Barry Langrishe), the pair leave a glaring trail of bodies and robberies in their wake.
Drawing on familiar film noir conventions, including the increasing sense of distrust that informs a relationship based on crime, the stylish Kiss or Kill
plays out with velocity, irreverence and an unexpectedly playful humour.
