Title: Blue Murder
Post by: Walton on December 14, 2005, 09:48:03 PM
I'm from Australia, and one of my all time favorite Aussie films is a 3 part TV mini series made in 1996 called Blue Murder. It's based on real life events in New South Wales, in Sydney, revolving around corrupt cop Roger Rogerson and his best friend, drug dealer and crime lord Neddy Smith. Despite being made for TV, this show is as tough as it gets with some truly brutal, disturbing violence and characters - it's kind of like Goodfellas down under.

Anyway, Blue Murder has only been available on dvd in Australia - but a friend just told me it has been picked up by a US company and is out over there as a 2 disc edition! I had no idea anyone would have even heard of it in the US, but whatever - if you like cop/crime movies, I'd highly recommend taking a look at it if you come across it.
