One of the most popular films in this year's Couched program as been the audacious new Australian feature Bloodshot Heart.

An impressive psychological drama the film is filled with vibrant colour, striking visualisations and textured dramatic set pieces, esteemed Australian film critic Adrian Martin says:

"Bloodshot Heart is like the modern-day version of an Italian giallo horror-thriller from the 1960s or ‘70s. It has all the right ingredients: erotic obsession, colliding personal fantasies, vivid hallucination sequences, sick and twisted family relationships. Key aspects of the filmmaking exude a properly cosmopolitan aura – something achieved too rarely in Australian cinema. Susan Lumsdon’s superb cinematography, Matt Perrott’s sound design and Ola Turkiewicz’s evocative score (was I wrong to keep hearing the first four notes of Kraftwerk’s 'Trans Europe Express' in it?) lift the mundane, everyday spaces into a sinister, dreamlike realm. The editing by Shannon Michaelas soups up the psychedelic shocks at the best, most delirious moments."
