The bloodthirsty Dust lurches so wildly and meaninglessly between genres and time frames that all it creates is motion sickness.

Dazzling and dazed.

Dust is a bust, a big bad movie of the scope, ambition and bravura that could be made only by a talented filmmaker run amok.

Manchevski stumbles headlong into a tangle of mismatched tones and plot points.

In reaching for a cubist style of storytelling, [Manchevski] sacrifices character and motivation.

The two eras presented in this film may display similar violent dispositions but ultimately their overriding sensibilities are just too different to integrate.

The chaotic, brutal iconography of Italian Westerns is put to novel use in this time-traveling, self-referential, hugely ambitious story.

A picture this long and dense should work harder to be cogent and coherent.

The film lacks coherent characters, relationships you can care about and an intelligible plot.

There's something off-putting about the bloodthirsty relish with which violence is choreographed and photographed, whilst Fiennes is hopelessly miscast as the avenging preacher.

Una genial muestra de fracturas narrativas.
