Like its title, "Western" is both startlingly direct and full of resonance and ambiguity.

A culture clash defined by an incredibly strong first-time performance, it's continually more emotionally surprising than its dry packaging lets on.

A slow burn of a drama with a restrained tone that may put off some viewers, but which will captivate those who responded to its low-key wavelength.

"Western" is as precise as a dropped pin on a GPS map, which makes its sense of mystery all the more powerful.
