Head Like A Hole (aka HLAH) were a clap of heavy metal thunder over the jangly chords of the early 90s NZ music scene. Known for unhinged, "ape shit" live shows and outrageous clothing-optional antics, their flame died out amidst drugs and acrimony before a 21st Century reformation. This all-access passion project from director Julian Boshier was a decade in the making, tagging along with Nigel 'Booga' Beazley (and partner Tamzin), Nigel Regan et al, as the still rocking members of this distinctive Kiwi rock’n’roll family enter middle age: spats, moshing n’all.

"Swagger of Thieves is a heartfelt, hilarious and heartbreaking trip into the reality of the hardest-charging band of a generation. Whether you come as a fan of the music, as a fan of solid filmmaking, or as a bystander wondering what all the noise is about, you’ll be seeing one of the most intelligently assembled and truthfully told documentaries New Zealand has ever produced." - Graeme Tuckett.
