Monkey's Mask, The (2000, AUS/FRA/ITA/CDN/JAP) C-93m. SCOPE *** D: Samantha Lang. Starring Susie Porter, Kelly McGillis, Marton Csokas, Abbie Cornish, William Zappa, Brendan Cowell, John Noble. Quite atmospheric crime drama and character study set in Sydney about lesbian private eye Porter, who takes on case of young poet, who has been missing for some time and gets involved with university professor McGillis, who was one of her teachers. Interesting, well-scored adaptation of the novel by Dorothy Porter gives you what you expect.
