***1/2 Wake in Fright A lost drive-in classic of Australian cinema, this grimly brilliant (and newly restored) 1971 drama about an outback town sees drunken macho de-evolution as a Down Under way of life. It’s a toxic shrimp on the barbie. With Gary Bond, Donald Pleasence, and Jack Thompson; directed by Ted Kotcheff. (106 min., R) (Ty Burr)
