Chopper (2000)

Can a crazy legendary criminal be also a famous and best selling author in Australia at the same time? At the case of Mark "Chopper" Read, yes it can. This film delivers one of the best portrayals of a psychopath ruling the underground crime business. Chopper spent half of his life in prison for various crimes. He was fearless and had a special friendship with his mate Jimmy Loughnan even if the last one betrayed him several times as well. Chopper's intimate relationship with prostitute Tanya was another devastating part of his life. And of course his paranoia that Neville Bartos, an old enemy still wanted him dead. All these, led Chopper to an insane delirium that contained outbreaks of violence. Eric Bana gives a stunning performance and shows the real face of a man that could be understood only by himself.
