    The Odd Angry Shot

    So Don at Synapse made this post today on FB...

    "QCing the DVD version of THE ODD ANGRY SHOT today. The theatrical trailer is as long as the movie it seems! LOL!"

    I don't remember seeing this one mentioned as slated for release but evidently it's close.

    Looks like it could be an interesting take on the Australian involvement in the Vietnam War.

    It's had releases overseas but not on DVD stateside.

    And then just like that....

    DVD & Blu-ray coming in August.

    Tom Jeffrey’s classic Australian film, THE ODD ANGRY SHOT, is set in the late 1960s during the brutal war Australians shared with the United States: the struggle for Vietnam.

    Harry (Graham Kennedy), a hard-edged Special Air Service Corporal, meets a new company of soldiers during his second tour in Vietnam. There’s the naïve Bill (John Jarratt), the easy-going Bung (John Hargreaves), the blunt Rogers (Bryan Brown), the pragmatic Dawson (Graeme Blundell), and the youthful and innocent Scott (Ian Gilmour). Because of their training as professional soldiers from Australia’s toughest Army unit, these men believe they can deal with any situation. They pass the time playing practical jokes, getting into drunken brawls and humoring themselves to keep their minds off the war. But, when the first “odd angry shot” rings out, and an enemy mortar barrage hits their camp causing many casualties, the men realize their protective shield of humor is no defense at all against the harsh realities of armed combat.

    This is a pretty good film, as I recall. (Last time I saw this would be back in the 1990s; I vividly remember watching it with my father.) I'd be interested in revisiting it again, especially on Blu-ray.
