About the Movie
In the harsh, unforgiving landscape of the Outback, Charlie Burns is presented with an impossible proposition by local law enforcer Captain Stanley: the only way to save younger brother Mikey from the gallows is to track down and kill Arthur, his psychotic older brother. Meanwhile Captain Stanley is desperate to shield his innocent wife from the brutalities of their new surroundings, having given up their comfortable life in England. An uneasy sense of foreboding grows as each character faces a punishing moral dilemma that leads inexorably to a devastating climax.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A pitiless yet elegiac Australian Western as caked with beauty as it is with blood.
Fresh: The squeamish should skip this film. But its recurring violence seems justified in terms of the story Cave sets out to tell and is up a familiar alley for the songwriter who has an album called Murder Ballads.
Fresh: A near-masterpiece of mood and menace, and one that deserves to be seen on the largest screen possible.
Fresh: Offering proportionate measures of raw violence and lyrical soliloquizing, the Peckinpah-influenced The Proposition is for those who prefer their western action unvarnished but immaculately framed.
This movie is incredible! I was not expecting much out of it since I am very particular when it comes to westerns, but my father brought it home one day and I decided to give it a chance and I am so glad I did. The acting is amazing, the cinematography is fabulous, the soundtrack incredible... every component in this movie compliments one another. It's definitely not your classic western either... it's hard to describe. I am clueless as to why this movie has not made waves!
