Intriguing and shocking you'll be engulfed in this world Oct. 10 2010
By lookscankill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Originally I only purchased this movie because Peta Wilson was in it but was more than pleasantly surprised to find out the entire cast does a superb job of drawing the viewer into it's voyeuristic fantasy of a troubled Australian suburb. If you have ever wondered just exactly what is going on in all your neighborhood homes after watching this movie you may not want to know!

I won't give away any spoilers but I hope the yound male lead in this film makes more movies where he can bring his characters such honesty and realism. Of course Peta was great too in her supporting role. If you like to be drawn into a movie and don't mind getting creeped out a little, "Beautiful" is right up your alley.

A lonely adolescent is like a loaded gun... March 9 2011
By R. Nadel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
In a quiet Australian suburb, an introverted teen lives with his policeman father and his father's girlfriend. To the boy, the adult world is unfathomable and full of secrets. His mother died when he was a baby, but his taciturn father won't speak of her. Down the street, a neighbor furtively peers out of her living room window all day, seemingly afraid of something; no one has ever seen her outside. In recent years, there have been stories about local girls who have been abducted, never to be seen alive again. And the beautiful, oversexed, girl next door believes the two of them can figure out what is going on in their neighborhood, for fun.

This movie has several things going for it as a thriller: the dialog and *everyone's* acting are terrific; the plot sets you up for some interesting and unexpected developments; the story is seen from the vantage point of several of the characters, lending it a sort of "Rashomon" feel; and the movie begins at a meandering pace but imperceptibly gains momentum, like a river flowing fatefully to the falls. It builds to a deafening crescendo that ends with a climax as sudden, intense, and haunting as Taxi Driver's.

The movie also has several weaknesses that prevent it from being a great thriller: it borrows atmosphere and imagery from the David Lynch movie "Blue Velvet"; the tone of the movie alternates between sinister and banal in such a way that it obscures its psychologically unsettling and unique observation; and a central character behaves incomprehensibly at the end so the plot can be tied up, but somewhat unsatisfactorily.

The world of adults is full of secrets and misinformation, because people don't talk to each other. And a lonely adolescent is like a loaded gun.

Good Idea. Clumsy Execution Dec 8 2011
By Eric Sanberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I was rather pumped to see this after reading the synopsis and a couple of user reviews. As it turns out, I could have waited.

This is a shame as it's a rather cool idea. They just didn't have the stuff to pull it off.

Here's the scoop. This made for Aussie TV movie is set in a quiet, upper middle class suburb, but something is afoot. A few young girls have gone missing over a couple of years and there is a run down, mysterious house at the end of one of the blocks. A black, muscle car is seen cruising now and then and has some tie to that house. A young boy, an outsider, who lives with his policeman dad and dad's live in girlfriend teams up with a neighbor girl to try and unravel these mysteries.

This is a movie about how things can get out of hand. How a little information can be dangerous. This is a cloistered community where most everyone wants things nice, safe and neat. Appearances count for much and when the hot, spoiled girl is sunbathing in the rain, in a sexy, red swimsuit, well....that just isn't right. She manipulates her young neighbor friend, with her wiles, to worm his way into the mysterious house and get the low down. He does and this really heats up the issues.

The acting and production values are on par with the story. Nothing bad but nothing really outstanding, with the possible exception of the two young leads. What it needed was a better script. Something more subtle and with more finesse. This was just too clunky. And the final scene was so far out of left field I can't imagine what was on the producer's/ director's mind.

This is by no means a bad watch. It just could have been so much better.
An interesting movie Jan. 2 2013

No the greatest flick I've ever seen, but not terrible either. Bought it used and didn't pay much, so wasn't too disappointed.
