Wake in Fright


Watch Wake in Fright (1971)

After a bad gambling establishment, a teacher-tied John Grant is locked up in a city full of crazy, drunk, violent men who are threatening to drive him crazy, drunk, and violent in equal measure.

In my opinion Wake in Fright is one of the most impressive films. Most movies, even the greatest ones, evaporate like mist once you've returned to the real world; they leave memories behind, but their reality fades free quickly. Not this one. I know it gets a lot of stick for being the mainstream popular movie, but honestly I can not think of anything wrong with the movie online. Wake in Fright is movie, you will watch whole, more than once. The variety of dialogues, which is the power of this production, excites the viewer, especially against today's movies that are clearly weak and so boring. Ted Kotcheff proved that the whole film can hold the viewer's attention. Now, watch and enjoy :).... Show more
