CHOPPER: The Inside Story

"A distinctive blend of criminal psychology meeting a showbiz mentality," is how the film’s Executive Producer Al Clark describes Andrew Dominik’s screenplay of Chopper, about Mark Chopper Read, convicted murderer and standover man – and best selling author. Dominik’s film is an important milestone in Australian filmmaking, exploring a living criminal’s persona – warts and all.
