Geoffrey Wright 's script was inspired by the highly publicised crimes of leading Melbourne Neo-Nazi skinhead Dane Sweetman.
The police arrest the rest of the gang. However, Hando watches from a distance and flees. Arriving at Davey's flat, Hando finds his friend in bed with Gabrielle.
Hando accuses her of informing the police, but Davey says they were together the whole time since leaving the squat. Hando convinces Davey to stick by him, and the trio go on the run. They rob a service station, before Hando strangles the Asian attendant to death; and, driving all night, they stop at a beach.
The next morning on the beach, Gabrielle overhears a conversation wherein Hando tries to convince Davey to leave her behind. Gabrielle sets their car on fire and admits to phoning the police. Hando attacks her, attempting to drown her in the surf. However, Davey stabs Hando in the neck with his Hitler Youth knife. After the fight, Davey cradles a horrified Gabrielle, watched by a busload of Japanese tourists; and Hando gazes at the ocean as he bleeds to death.
Geoffrey Wright 's script was inspired by the highly publicised crimes of leading Melbourne Neo-Nazi skinhead Dane Sweetman. Sweetman was at that time in the process of serving a life sentence in Pentridge Prison for murder. The interview could not be arranged in a timely manner due to prison regulations, so the two men commenced correspondence, and Sweetman furnished Wright with a transcript of his murder trial, from which Wright drew influence.
This influence is most clearly seen in the line delivered by Hando when scaring off squatters from the warehouse: It is a direct reference to Sweetman's having cut off the legs of his victim. That was one of many aspects of the film that mirrored Sweetman's life. A further example is the characters Gabrielle, Davey, and the punk girls were all based on associates of Sweetman.
Sweetman's name was conspicuously absent in the end credits, however. This issue was raised in the Australian media during the publicity phase of promoting the film. Russell Crowe acknowledged the origin of his character during an interview on Tonight Live with Steve Vizard in Wright also spoke of the influence during a radio interview in the same year.
The film's score was released by Picture This Records. It included the orchestral music and the energetic punk rock music similar to the Oi! White Power labels have bootlegged the RAC tracks and released them on a 7" many times since the soundtrack's release. In , a Russian WP label released the whole soundtrack on a 12". Some people have also considered the Australian punk band the Bastard Squad to have done the soundtrack, due to the line "Jason from the Bastard Squad" being in the thank you section at the movie's end credits.
The actual versions of the RAC songs used in the film are earlier versions to what ended up on the commercial CD—most obvious being "Fuhrer Fuhrer", which plays in the scene after Hando is notified about Vietnamese being at the Railway Hotel—Clifford-White's intonation is slightly different and there are no backing vocals in the chorus.
The film was nominated for nine Australian Film Institute Awards. Stratton would many years later clarify his rating stating: Cold day, office job? Maybe you can wear them twice or more before they go back to the washing machine.
Personally, if I wear a pair of jeans to work on Friday—cool climate, office job—I tend to wear them on Saturday. And if Saturday is spent indoors and I'm not spilling food all over myself, I might even wear them on Sunday. For those who prefer to refrain from washing their jeans there have been suggestions to freeze them in order to kill the germs that cause odor.
However, this advice has been disputed as ineffective and replaced with the suggestion of baking them for ten minutes at degrees Fahrenheit. Jeans are covered under laws regarding trousers. As well, there have been some notable legal cases involving jeans specifically:. In Rome , Italy , in , a year-old driving instructor was accused of rape.
When he picked up an year-old girl for her first driving lesson, he allegedly raped her for an hour, then told her that if she was to tell anyone he would kill her. Later that night she told her parents and her parents agreed to help her press charges. While the alleged rapist was convicted and sentenced, the Italian Supreme Court overturned the conviction in because the victim wore tight jeans.
It was argued that she must have necessarily had to help her attacker remove her jeans, thus making the act consensual "because the victim wore very, very tight jeans, she had to help him remove them The Italian Supreme Court stated in its decision "it is a fact of common experience that it is nearly impossible to slip off tight jeans even partly without the active collaboration of the person who is wearing them.
The day after the decision, women in the Italian Parliament protested by wearing jeans and holding placards that read "Jeans: An Alibi for Rape". As a sign of support, the California Senate and Assembly followed suit.
As of [update] at least 20 U. Wearing jeans on this day has become an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. As of the Italian Supreme Court has overturned their findings, and there is no longer a "denim" defense to the charge of rape. In , an Indian family court in Mumbai ruled that a husband objecting to his wife wearing a kurta and jeans and forcing her to wear a sari amounts to cruelty inflicted by the husband and can be a ground to seek divorce.
In the Soviet Union , jeans were the symbol of the Western way of life. The jeans brand Rokotov and Fainberg is named after the defendants in the Rokotov—Faibishenko case , who were executed for, among other things, trafficking in jeans. Although not outright banned, jeans were hard to come by in USSR. It was seen as a symbol of rebellion by the Soviet youth who wanted to emulate the style of film and rock stars of the West. The Soviet government resisted supplying the market with jeans as that would mean responding to the market , a capitalist principle.
This led to the creation of black markets and bootlegging of jeans, which since has become an important cultural element in the history of the Soviet Union. In , Nike, Lululemon, Under Armour , and Adidas were the most popular brands for athletic apparel among teen consumers.
Fashion retailers have begun to adjust their offerings accordingly. Bloomberg reports that Levi's, which is the world's most iconic denim company, stuck to its core product denim instead of adapting to consumer trends. Distressed denim emerged from the cultural punk movement in the s. Early punks tore apart consumer goods as an expression of their anger towards society. Denim became a key target of this politically fueled deconstruction, with both men and women donning torn pants and jackets, accessorized with safety pins and slogans.
The trend became popular again in the s with the emergence of grunge fashion. If punk was "anti-fashion", grunge was "non-fashion".
The grunge youth wore loose-fitting ripped jeans, flannel shirts or woolen Pendletons layered over T-shirts. Their anti-conformist approach to fashion led to the popularization of the casual chic look, a trend which continued into the s. Media reported in that the trend of low-rise jeans , famous in s and s as sagging , was coming back in fashion due to celebrities like Justin Bieber endorsing it.
