Animal Kingdom

This Australian crime film got tons of hype for Jacki Weaver's performance as the mother of a family of psychopathic thugs. She's great but the film, and the other actors, are equally stunning. This is an unpredictable, terrifying and entertaining film. Guy Pearce is in this as well, as a sympathetic homicide detective. It's a solid, solid film, even if I was not always sure what was happening on screen, and I'm still not sure I understood the ending.
