 'A FIERCELY UNCOMPROMISING, SHARPLY INTELLIGENT THRILLER ...the cleverly constructed plot keeps us guessing who the killer is until the very end.


Whether you find it confronting, funny or maybe a little bit sickening, it's likely that THE DAY OF THE BROKEN will stay with you well after you leave the cinema.'


'This is a film that can make the hardest filmgoer flinch... it doesn't unfold like a natural mystery which leaves you watching with bated breath... Deaf Center provide an ominous soundtrack so perfectly suited to every beat and moment of the film it's possibly one of the best scores in Australian cinema of recent times.'

'A wry balance of comedy and thrills shines through in the portrayals... it's the contrast that resonates  with The Day of the Broken ruminating on disparity and darkness.'


'S J Dutton doesn't hold back with his dark and confronting debut feature'


'Reminiscent in style and tone to Scorsese's Mean Streets... The Day of the Broken is a fine film that should not be readily dismissed as a violent exploitation film. The film is a cohesive exploration of people trapped in unsavoury situations and is a worthy slice of life portrayal of gritty realism. 

Highly recommended.
