Stranger Says:

A bedraggled outback cop (Aaron Pedersen) is sent to investigate a missing-person case in a small mining town, and, in the best noir tradition, quickly stumbles into a whole nest of vipers. Writer/director Ivan Sen’s stand-alone sequel to his earlier Mystery Road is exceedingly well-crafted, smuggling some potent themes underneath its drum-tight narrative. A fantastic example of genre filmmaking, chock-full of shady people doing shady things, cars vrooming through breathtakingly wide open spaces, and a brilliantly staged shoot-out in a maze of industrial trailers. All this, plus Jacki Weaver as a suspiciously burbly mayor, to boot.
