Beer And Loathing In The Yabba

Image

John Grant (Gary Bond), a British school teacher in Australia, is on his way to Sydney to see his girlfriend for Christmas break…when a one-night stay in the Outback turns into a 5 day descent into the heart of darkness…as the civilized intellectual Grant partakes in the local pastimes: gambling, drinking, fisticuffs, drinking, debauchery, drinking, ‘roo hunting, and drinking. Along for the hellride is Doc Tyden (Donald Pleasence) a physician on the skids…Pleasence is completely riveting, by turns humorous, repugnant, philosophical, mad, sympathetic, pathetic, and terrifying…just like the film itself. Crikey, my head is still spinning… anybody got a beer?
