MF: Scam

Kim, a small-time scam artist, is desperate to move up the ranks of Melbourne's seedy criminal underworld but faces stiff competion from Ben, her crimeboss father's newly annointed apprentice.

Thought lost for 20 years after a house fire destroyed a large chunk of footage, Cameron McCulloch's debut has, like a filmmaking phoenix, been ressurected from the ashes thanks to long months spent in lockdown. A veritable COVID miracle, SCAM is a loving ode to the new wave of crime films that were spawned after Quentin Tarantino burst onto the scene in 1992 with RESERVOIR DOGS - but made with $5000 budget and a cast of unknowns (including Kesti Morassi in her feature debut). Interspaced with hilarious one-liners, a masturbating clown and a horde of pop-culture references that will bring a tear to the eye of anyone who grew up in the 90s / early 2000s, SCAM is the kind of film not often made in Australia, a funny, subversive, violent, action-comedy about the lives of criminals and cops.
