Subgenre of film noir characterised by a contemporary Australian setting. Often has many of the characteristics of traditional film noir - a morally ambiguous protagonist, crime, existential themes - but features a cast of characters colloquially known as bogans. Examples include The Boys, Two Hands, The Square and Suburban Mayhem.
The Square was a great example of bogan noir - 'No Country for Old Men' with mullets and moccasins!
