Just a quick one for you this week.
I've been lucky enough to be poolside during this heatwave we've been experiencing in the UK but the sweltering heat can do strange things to people, especially if you're stranded in a town in the Australian outback undertaking unruly levels of beer consumption. This is the setting for Ted Kotcheff's sweaty and dystopian cult classic WAKE IN FRIGHT.

Have a drink, mate? Have a fight, mate? Have a dust and sweat, mate? There's nothing else out here.
