Kaikohe Demolition

Film (Full Length and Trailer) – 2004

Parental Guidance
I'm happy that my Dad left me a legacy behind bro', I'm sorry it wasn't a Subaru Legacy.
– One of the bros in their demo car
tender, highly enjoyable ... most memorable for the unforced eccentricity or indigenous surrealism that is quickly becoming [Florian] Habicht's mode.
– Philip Matthews, reviewing the film in The Listener, 2004
