Aussie director John Hillcoat helmed this gripping, epic-scale Western set in the thick of the 1880s outback. When no-nonsense lawman Capt. Stanley (Ray Winstone) apprehends the notorious Charlie Burns (Guy Pearce) and his younger sibling, Mikey (Richard Wilson), Stanley makes Charlie an unsavory proposition: If he murders his outlaw brother, Arthur (Danny Huston), Mikey will escape the hangman's noose. Emily Watson plays Stanley's genteel wife.

The Proposition is a harsh, brutal Australian western, from a screenplay written by Nick Cave. It serves as an insight into Australia's violent past, as well as an exploration of brotherly love and family loyalty. Not to be missed.

The Proposition is a harsh, gritty and dirty hellish journey into one family's cycle of violence and a country's early years of settlement and class displacement. Shot as equally sweltering as the Australian desert landscape, the film features a stirringly dark and ambient musical score by Nick Cave who also does a fine job with the script. Not for the faint hearted, The Proposition to this day remains John Hillcoat's finest work.

It has Nick Cave written all over it - slow and brooding, always on the verge of bloody violence and with complicated and strained family relations dead center. Shows you how much a western can be, even without braking genre conventions.

Flawed and lacking, but still rather spectacular because of some great directing, which allowed for some nifty cinematography and editing. Yet this stylish neo-Western grottiness covers up the mild storyline, and though there are other characters to focus on, Pearce's central character doesn't seem thuggish and isn't that well acted. I would like such fantastic dressing for a different film, one with a more refined script (despite some good lines here and there).

Unsettling, violent Australian western with a touch of surrealism by Hillcoat and Nick Cave (yes, musician), who have a working relationship for two decades already, and it works great, from what I've seen. It touches morality and justice in a very effective way, but I find their latter collaboration - Lawless more entertaining and captivating. Fucking white people are pure evil, aren't they...

Nicely shot, very atmospheric but there's not much to back it up. With pearce being the exception, most characters are badly casted, danny huston is super flat and uncharismatic, trying sort of a brando-apocalypse routine that's painful to watch. Winstone does nothing except tear up a lot, and i can't help but think of emily watson as one of the most annoying screen presences to date. The plot itself is appealing, but, without spoiling too much, there are some weird choices.

The film that neither Nick Cave nor John Hillcoat has even touched since. Pearce's Hollywood hiatus did him wonders.
