If you read my article on Aussie cinema, then you’re well aware of my obsession for the recent films made there over the last year or so. Nash Edgerton (one Oz’s Blue-Tongue Films member), who wrote and directed this year’s THE SQUARE, sent me some information on a film he produced  in 2005 called THE MAGICIAN. The film is a faux documentary on a hitman who “makes people disappear.”

THE MAGICIAN was made for roughly $3,000 AUD and was shot in ten days. Its star, Scott Ryan, also wrote, directed, edited, produced, location-scouted, and catered the film as well. This guy was serious about getting this film made. It did, playing and getting positive buzz in Sydney, Melbourne, Eninburgh, and Auckland. It received a limited release here in the States over the weekend, playing at L.A.’s Sunset 5. If you’re on the West coast and want to see this, you’ll get your wish on November 12th.

I’ve embedded the trailer after jump, along with an article written about Ryan. Check it out!
