Following the rape and murder of a colonial family, outlaw brothersCharlie and Mikey burns are captured by ruthless local lawman, CaptainStanley. Rather than imprison both fugitives, Stanley presents Charliewith a proposition (though it's really a demand) that Charlie kill hisolder brother, and gang...
Just superb - wonderful, austere direction that gets the best from agreat cast and some extraordinary landscapes. A tight, disciplinedscript from Nick Cave that's testament to how his writing continues toreach new levels - not to mention his collaboration with Warren Ellison the beautifully uneasy s...
A real treat of a Western - gritty, bloody, unjust & riddled withflies. An apocalyptic glimpse of some hard family lessons from NickCave. Brilliant performances all round thanks to Ray Winstone, EmilyWatson & Guy Pearce in particular. Visually stunning due to thelocation (anyone with the ability to ...
Nick Cave's essay in the true and tried Western format, shows how aharsh land (Colonial Australia) brutalizes the men who try and conquerit. Yet this tale has passages of lyricism that counterpoint the suddenmoments of savagery. It is a very gritty often grisly picture of 19thCentury Australia, wart...
I don't enjoy violence in movies, especially if it's unnecessary. Butthis movie was justified in its use. Calling this movie very violent orbloody is misunderstanding the movie - it's taking the focus away fromwhat matters in the movie: the landscape, the directing, the music, thecharacters as they ...
This movie is a visceral, violent study of blood-ties exploring ethnicand family bonds, feuds, loyalty and betrayal. You can literally smellthe reeking sweat, blood and dust of the colonial Outback coming offthe screen. Nick Cave's script is shot through with his signature dark poetry; ittranslates ...
Put simply this is the best Australian movie I have seen for years. Aso-called Australian Western this is uniquely Australian and a must seefor both Australian audiences and international audiences who wouldhave no idea what living in early 'civilised' Australia must have beenlike. Well acted with t...
Australia is a country in the throws of settlement by the English andlawlessness is rife. As the bloody clearing of aborigines continues,one gang's attack on a white family causes outrage. The pressure is onCaptain Stanley to bring in the Burns gang, led by the sadistic andheartless Arthur. When Sta...
Everyone connected with this film should be extremely proud of themovie they created. I will mention specifically: Delhomme for hisextraordinary cinematography; Eden for her beautifully stark SetDecoration; Hillcoat for impeccable direction and especially John Hurtin a small but tremendously evocati...
Set on an arid desert and sun-baked continent, during the late 1800'sBritish settlement days, Pearce stars as Charlie Burns, one of threebrothers that make up the notorious criminal Arthur Burns… At the opening credits Charlie and his younger brother the 14-year-oldMikey are captured after a bl...
Wow, what a brutal "western." I put "western" in quotes because mostpeople think of the western half of the United States as being thelocale for western movies. This movie was made and set in Australia butthe time frame is similar: around 1880. What's "brutal" about the storyis the violence, bloodsh...
After watching this film, I would argue that no other Western hasconveyed the loneliness or natural setting that this one has. Nor hasany other Western shown its outlaws and lawmen in such an impartial orobjective light as this one has. And considering the company of filmsthis would include, 'The Un...
So I just got back from The Proposition, an extremely upsetting andvisually arresting Australian western written by Nick Cave and directedby John Hillcoat. The cast was amazing: Guy Pearce, John Hurt, DannyHuston, and above and beyond all, the stunning Ray Winstone and thealways perfect Emily Watson...
Captain Stanley captures two notorious outlaw brothers Charlie andMickey Burns . He makes a proposal to Charlie . If Charlie goes andkills the leader of their gang Arthur Burns and brings his body backthey will be given an amnesty . If not Mickey will be hung on Christmasday which is nine days away ...
This Aussie Western, scripted by Nick Cave, written by John Hillcoat,presents its mythical story with admirable clarity and not a littlepoetry.For mine, it was too slow in parts, but it is a worthy work of sharpimagination that uses its setting as character and boasts severalexcellent performances -...
This film is sheer poetry....It conveys the horror of humanity, mostespecially in men. It's characters show a splendid view of passion andconnection between humans as well as egoism and ruthless self-interestdevoid of humanity that makes this a powerful and modern horror realityfilm.It may not be fa...
Late nineteenth century Australia seems to have been quite a hellishplace indeed if we are to believe what Nick Cave and John Hillcoat havegiven us here. From the unflinching, seeming authenticity, the weightof conflicting emotion on the part of each and every human beingportrayed, and the sheer bea...
An inspired Hillcoat-Cave collaboration that will repulse and attractaudiences in equal measure, The Proposition is a lyrical, enigmatic butbrutal examination of the human condition set in early settlerAustralia. Hillcoat's stark framing and unflinching portrayal ofviolence is perfectly blended with...
This is an Australian film, and an Australian Western at that. Itdidn't get a lot of press or a lot of play, and I didn't even get tosee it until I rented it one day - from the library! It is so well doneas a film, and I believe probably one of the best Westerns ever made.Coming from a life long Joh...
The Proposition (2005) **** There is a brooding sense of despair and dread in The Proposition, thatis found in few other films. This is a violent film, but no moreviolent than your average run of the mill slasher flick. The differenceis in the atmosphere that Hillcoat and Cave create out of the grim...
The Proposition has the kind of premise that Anthony Mann would haveloved – wild colonial boy Guy Pearce is released into the outback tokill his psychotic older brother Danny Huston to save his youngerbrother from the noose by Ray Winstone's policeman determined tocivilize his godforsaken corne...
I awaited this film for quite some time (not having a theater in myhometown there was no plausible way of me seeing this film and thisfact combined with the films stupidly limited releases forced me intousing other means to view it). I'll admit right away that I over-hypedthe film for a long time be...
I really thought this was a gem and it blends a lot together. If youare a fan of Nick Cave it will also be a treat. However not for theeasily disturbed. I am happy to be blessed with the opportunity to seethis movie. Where I currently live gets a lack of films which reallydisappoints me. It was plea...
I've seen a lot of excellent Australian productions from the 'Squeeze AFlower', 'They're A Weird Mob', 'A Town Like Alice' and 'Tim' era,through to 'Quigley Down Under' and many more. These have my absolute'thumbs-up' award.Now I have to add another. 'The Proposition'. This is a masterpiece!The stor...
The best part about The Proposition is that it is a glimpse ofAustralian history that few of us know anything about. ScreenwriterNick Caves, who is primarily a composer, tells the fascinating thestory of rival factions striving for control of the Australian outbackin the 19th century. While we are n...
