Sleeping Dogs (1977) starring Sam Neill Blu Ray (Arrow Academy)

This seminal dystopian sci-fi action thriller from New Zealand is low-budget and technically rough around the edges. However, it succeeds admirably in mixing entertainment with a chilling cautionary tale. It also stars Nevan Rowe, Ian Mune and Warren Oates.

Once Were Warriors (1994) Blu Ray (Second Sight)

This debut from the once-promising New Zealand director Lee Tamahori is a hard-hitting and all-too-honest look at a marginalised culture and the prevalent issues of alcoholism and violence within.
