A most unusual "western" if that term even applies. In present day New York a dying woman tells a young thief the story of 2 brothers at the turn of the century, focusing on the eldests journey through Macedonia, a land as brutal as it is beautiful. For me this was an absolutly amazing movie, a movie both brutally violent and intelligent. Yet Dust also deals with redemption and the way story and myth connects people throughout the span of history. I hope writer/director Milcho Manchevski keeps making movie's and David Wenham proves himself to be top notch as the eldest brother Luke, a man who uses words sparingly. The final gun battle is one of the greatest ever filmed summing up Luke's life to that moment. Dust, you'll love it or hate it, but you owe it to yourself to see this movie.
