Very brief review

Nick Cave's new movie, The Proposition, is probably not art, but it is definitely worth seeing, if only for the beautiful cinematography coupled with Nick Cave's excellent taste in literary quotations. The Film makes the case that the American Wild West was part of a global Zeitgeist, and many people will leave the theater thinking that Australian Outback was, in fact, wilder and more depraved than the North American western territories. You probably will not remember much about the movie in ten years time, and it has the sort of borderline R rating that could be pushed into NC-17 if you just breathed on it, but if the theater is chilled and the weather is hot, there are worse ways to pass a Summer evening.
