While we’re awaiting the first reviews and audience responses to the premiere screening of Mystery Road, I thought I’d share our Sydney Correspondent Yvette’s red carpet photos (and she’s promising more!) 😉 She was unable to get tickets for the screening but was on hand for the Red Carpet. As usual, there were obstructions in place for anyone without a ticket (and the road in front of the cinema as NOT closed off, leading to traffic challenges) but she got some wonderful shots nonetheless:

Hey! Isn’t that Richard Roxburgh?

We’re starting to get he first audience responses via Twitter too:
Mystery road was stunning. Aaron peaderson was incredible #sff
Blown away by Mystery Road at the Sydney Film Fest. Powerful narrative & message plus a stunning performance by Aaron Pedersen. Mesmerising
Strongly recommend Ivan Sen’s Mystery Road. Heart in mouth more or less throughout. Aaron Pedersen superb. Strong message but no preaching
#sff mystery road brilliant intense film new take on gun fights
Just saw the premiere of Ivan Sen’s Mystery Road at #sydfilmfest It really was an ‘infecting & affecting campfire’ of a film. Fantastic.
A man rides around the same block over & over. Each time he learns more about the land, more about himself. MYSTERY ROAD works. #sydfilmfest
Hugo Weaving has a brooding menace+charm in #MysteryRoad which just continues to confirm him as such a great actor. Small perfect moments.
I’m still mulling over MYSTERY ROAD. A stoic slow burn with a superb cast to be sure. #SydFilmFest
I’ll share longer reviews from critics/bloggers in the next post… I’m running on fumes and will have to get a few hours’ sleep first. 😉

Why, yes, that IS Richard Roxburgh!
