And on Love Film tonight is... The Proposition. staring Roay Winstone. Now if you want a slow slow Western but Australia then this film is for you. Be warned it is a very slow film. But if you make it all the way through awake it is a gem of a story. And if you like slow films try Winstones other slow film 44" chest. Anyway the offical blurp of the film is:

Struggling to bring the order to the territory, a ruthless English police captain (Ray Winstone) hunts down the Burns gang - the brothers wanted for a brutal rape and murder. But while Charlie (Guy Pearce) and Mikey are taken prisoner, the gangs psychopathic leader escapes to their hideout in the hills.
