Dogs in Space
Deanna Bond, Tony Helou, Nique Needles, Michael Hutchence
 Winner of the TC3 prize for making a little plot go a long way is this film about life in a Melbourne squat during the halcyon days of punk (remember them? I
don't.). The inhabitants have wild parties, sleep around, go to concerts and take drugs, with the expected tragic consequences. Michael Hutchence (pause for at least one reader to take a cold shower!), late of INXS [and now, er, just late...], does well when he doesn't have to act, though he fails to gain our sympathy when he should do. Overall, a successful film that knows it's limits and works well within them.
