One of the movies I'm most excited to see at Fantastic Fest is Ted Kotcheff's Wake in Fright. The film is 40 years old, but it's getting a new release from our sister company, Drafthouse Films. The movie is about a man trapped in the Australian outback in an alcoholic haze partially fueled by Donald Pleasance.
This trailer makes the film look incredible; I've had a chance to see a streaming version but I've opted to wait for the real deal on 35mm. The movie opens October 5th in New York and then expands October 12th.
