Efron understands he doesn't need to say and do too much here; he can internalise emotion and let the atmosphere and intensity of the film wash over him.

It is a bleak, uncompromising watch, yet one that provides a well-known actor the chance to strip his movie star sheen and deliver an uncompromising work.

If only Gold was a better film. Or even a good one...As simple as the premise is, it's weak as heck...Half-way through things get so inert you wish the distant dust trail of an approaching vehicle would turn out to be the bus from Priscilla. No such luck.

A grim, post apocalyptic survival tale capitalising on the Australian desert locations that work so well, though it doesn't overcome a sense of deja vu

... darkly compelling, richly satisfying ...
