August 16, 2021
An experimental, confronting riff on a well-worn genre trope, dripping with atmosphere, and packed with excellent performances.
January 23, 2019
Largely improvised to great effect, Kiss or Kill is a film that adheres to a classical narrative paradigm complete with plot causality whilst offering another level of reflection thereupon for a clued-in cine-literate audience.

March 1, 2002
A fresh and fast paced Australian drama about the mystery that resides in all people.

Imagine Terrence Malick's Badlands done as black comedy, with the rural atmosphere of Psycho and dialogue rubbed against flint.

In some ways, it's a remarkable recovery for writer-director Bill Bennett, whose much-tampered-with Sandra Bullock vehicle Two If by Sea was almost unwatchable.
January 1, 2000
Really does feel original and authentically creepy.

The performances are lovely, the odd characters engaging and the filmmaking interesting.
January 1, 2000
A mildly promising tale of lovers on the run.

Bennett tries to shake up the formula.
January 1, 2000
This latest antipodean entry into the genre is fresh and funny, intelligent and powerful, miraculously finding new mileage within the oft-travelled staple.
January 1, 2000
Too often more an exercise in style than an interesting narrative.

January 1, 2000
Proof positive that even though Robert Mitchum may no longer be with us, film noir continues onward, upward, into the dark.
