Step up for the Australian “Godfather.” Instead of Don Corleone we have the malicious bottle-blond from hell named Smurf. This is family crime down under and it oozes with maternal malevolence. Inspired by Melbourne’s colourful crime history, “Animal Kingdom” gives us the opportunity to view a fast disappearing Australian criminal subculture. Oscar nominated and a winner at Sundance – a gangster classic in the making.
