Storyline

Living in suburban Sydney, Pete and Jerry aren't just cousins, they're best friends. Jerry falls in love and starts a relationship with Cheryl, though he knows Pete likes her too. Pete, a small-time drug dealer, doesn't understand why Jerry suddenly wants to settle down and make plans (he gets a job at a fast-food place and works for a pittance). Then Pete has to lie low with his dealing for a while because the police are tailing him and Jerry gets him a job at the chicken restaurant. But Pete makes trouble and walks out, losing Jerry his job as well. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

A relatively perfect depiction of Sydney's inner west.
8 April 2010 | by bigjohn639See all my reviews

Really, I cannot believe why this movie isn't up and around the 7-8 territory, as it fictionally nails the way in which the suburbs of western Sydney operate. Also, I am lazy and don't really feel like writing a long review.

Brutally honest it is, containing the mixed-up and meddled world of youth druggery, emotional recovery and sadistic thuggery. Each of these aspects is delved into thoroughly throughout "West", all examined with utmost honesty. Enlightening the audience to both sides of the moon, we see the "unlikeable characters" portray what western Sydney truly can be, by both night and day.

The "unlikeable characters" - which one reviewer refers to as a detriment to the films quality and citing it as a prime reason for their 1/10 rating - are the most important part of "West". Adding amazing amounts of authenticity to the already stunningly real environment, the feeling which will gestate within the audience towards the film's characters will resonate with an emotional and intrigued view you gain if you watch this whilst taking note of the contextual influences upon the its production.

"West" - 9/10.
