There are no stagecoaches or six-shooters in this sharp, simmering drama of German-Bulgarian discord, but the spirit of John Ford graces it.

A naturalistic, almost documentary-like feature that slowly builds.

The heart of Western ultimately resides in a wonderfully open question: when a set of interrelated concepts are strung together to form a phrase, is that the same thing as a statement?

The centerpiece for [Grisebach's] ideas remark on the tropes of classic western but stripped of its romanticism and replaced with a more observant, worldly perspective.

The ensemble and milieu allow for some wonderfully organic tensions and commentary around masculinity and wanderlust.

Western is not a full-on, triumphant success, but in individual moments the film is just too delightful to ignore.
