As far as I'm aware, Sam Neill's first film - and what a
Starring a Kiwi, directed by a Kiwi and packed to the gunwales with Kiwi
talent, this is definitely no Hollywood hyperbole extravaganza.Its sole
concession to the 'star power' syndrome is the presence of Warren Oates
("Dillinger") as an armed subversive type
(I didn't dare to use the dreaded 'T' word!).
The film is under the very capable guidance of the now-also-well-known
Donaldson, who was also responsible for another powerful home-grown
"Smash Palace". Impressionable youngsters like Peter Jackson may have seen
this and decided their futures.
Like Jackson's LOTR trilogy, "Sleeping Dogs" is filmed on location in
Zealand. As such, the sets and scenery give a fair idea of life in
provincial and metropolitan NZ in the mid-70's (but there's no stunning
vistas of the majestic Southern Alps here, I'm afraid).

group of resistance fighters. Smith (Neill), very recently separated from
cheating wife, pretty much accidentally and

unyielding, merciless, baton-wielding riot police; blood is flowing,
Some five years after the film had been released, in 1981, the
then-internationally-banned Springbok rugby team from South Africa were
allowed to tour here, despite clamorous local and global opposition.
New Zealand experienced the horrors and scarring of civil division.
the Springboks played and also in the capital, Wellington, violence
And it seemed to many of us at the time that the scenes that Donaldson had
shot many years ago were now being replayed
almost nightly on the news. Spooky.
