“This film, without meaning to, is almost 95% true. Andrew stumbled into the truth,” says the real Chopper Read about CHOPPER, writer-director Andrew Dominik’s film of 2000.

In his break-out role, Eric Bana embodies one of the most infamous Australian criminals of all time: Mark Brandon “Chopper” Read. Inspired by the books of Read, Dominik’s film draws on police records, court transcripts, news coverage and interviews with people who knew the real man. Also starring Simon Lyndon, Vince Colosimo, Dan Wyllie and David Field, CHOPPER is a true Australian classic.
