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

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

A man rides around the same block over & over. Each time he learns more about the land, more about himself. MYSTERY ROAD works.

, the Blues have won one over the Maroons but, I find myself wanting to go to visit rural Queensland

I shall let the reviewer for Variety share his views Ivan Sen is a stunning filmmaker. Tarkovskian moments.

Hugo Weaving has a brooding menace+charm in which just continues to confirm him as such a great actor. Small perfect moments.

: Mystery Road is Australia’s answer to No Country for Old Men. An amazing start to ” INTERESTING!

I’m still mulling over MYSTERY ROAD. A stoic slow burn with a superb cast to be sure.

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. 😉

And Sydney area photographer Eva Rinaldi has posted some gorgeous large photos to her Flickr account. (Fans will remember her photos from the Oranges and Sunshine premiere a couple of years ago.)
