FILM REVIEW: Animal Kingdom

Phil Dixon gives full marks to the new Australian crime drama

Howl is something of an oddity to classify. Part biopic, part courtroom drama, part experimental animation, it becomes something of its own beast in the mixture of all three, all tied together by Allen Ginsberg’s titular, controversial poem.

On the other, she also makes the kind of electro-post-punk stormers that invite arty muso mags to use words like ‘jagged’, ‘angular’ and ‘banging’.
