Romper Stomper*

  • 1992 ----- color ----- 89 min ----- vhs
  • (Written and Directed by Geoffrey Wright; with Russell Crowe, Daniel Pollock, Jacqueline McKenzie, Alex Scott) Depicts the last days of a neo-Nazi skin-head gang as it fights to protect its "turf" from being taken over by Asian immigrants by focusing on the head of the skin-heads, Hando. Hando has the qualities of a leader and a strong loyalty to his friend, Davey. But he is consumed by a blind belief in the doctrine of racial purity as preached by Hitler. Director Wright succeeds in creating a disturbing film which reveals the ordinariness and vulnerability of the characters, while depicting the horrifying results of their simpleminded race hatred and nihilism.
