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

A meandering but quietly absorbing tale of comradeship amid social tensions.

Meinhard becomes increasingly enigmatic - was he a soldier? Is he a liar? What does he really want? - and [Valeska] Grisebach, sometimes infuriatingly, offers us tantalising hints of a drama that never quite fully unfolds.

One of the films of the year has arrived - maybe the best of the year - a work of unmatched subtlety, complexity and artistry.

Packed with moments of beauty worthy of classic westerns, and makes you want to be more attentive towards others.

A culture clash defined by an incredibly strong first-time performance, it's continually more emotionally surprising than its dry packaging lets on.
February 16, 2018
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.

There are no stagecoaches or six-shooters in this sharp, simmering drama of German-Bulgarian discord, but the spirit of John Ford graces it.
May 18, 2017
A naturalistic, almost documentary-like feature that slowly builds.
