Director: Brendan Fletcher
Starring: Dean Daley-Jones, Lucas Yeeda, Greg Tait, and Douglas Macale
A father and son movie. TJ (Dean Daley-Jones), is a street tough Aboriginal going nowhere and his son, Bullet (Lucas Yeeda), a wild teenager in an Aboriginal-led rehab camp. The pair has never met but TJ decides the time has come. The journey is a revelation and along the way we meet a bunch of characters including the gentle Uncle Black (Douglas Macale)who encourages TJ to voice his inner feelings. However TJ’s violent reputation precedes him and local lawman Texas (Greg Tait) is not about to let an outsider cause trouble. What happens when father meets son, well you need to see Mad Bastards to find out. You will not be disappointed. Mad Bastards is beautifully shot in Western Australia’s Kimberley region and the movie was cast of non-professional actors. All of which makes for a good movie.
