Movies You Haven't Seen But Should: The Last Wave

The Last Wave is a 1977 Australian film directed by Peter Weir about a white Australian lawyer whose seemingly normal life is turned upside-down when he takes on a murder case and discovers that he shares a strange and unexplained mystical connection to the small group of local Australian aboriginals accused of the crime.

Excellent film. I can remember, even now, how creeped out I was by it, first time I watched it. Every other time I've seen it the sense of doom, dread, even melancholy grows.

I agree! It's creepy and haunting and terrifying ... and, best of all, brilliant.
