25 best Australian movies ever

Thursday is Australia Day, so to pay tribute to our Antipodean chums we've picked out the best films from Down Under

Strictly Ballroom (1992)

The lesser known first installment of Baz Luhrmann’s Red Curtain Trilogy – stick with us – Strictly Ballroom is so bad it truly is an incredible piece of cinema. Full of garish ballroom dancing costumes, manic/ lonely middle aged has-beens and a clichéd Spanish family, like the Pan-Pacific Grand Prix it needs no new steps. Warning – contains a Cyndi Lauper montage and characters with names like Tina Sparkle.
