Movie Description:
Duke is a modern day telling of a classic western film. Dare and Roost are brothers who have been raised in a reformatory, taught to survive and conditioned to trust no one. They have moved to West Los Angeles, where Dare moonlights himself as a Detective and Roost blankets himself in old John Wayne films and reclusive habit. Cleaning the streets and ridding the neighborhoods of scum, this contemporary study finds Dare obsessed with a phantom like criminal (Winky) who seems to be terrorizing the community. Simultaneously, the same exact investigation is being led by official and likely engrossed Detective Robert Morrison. As Dare closes in on Winky and the entire department closes in on them both, these brothers must make the ultimate commitment and pay the extraordinary consequences therein. —Anthony Gaudioso

Enthralling Indie

Aside from my one gripe, that being the extreme vagueness of the suggested abuse suffered by these brothers as Tweens that resulted in such extreme emotional damage to both of them, in different ways, that leads to the state of beings they ended up in to "be" this movie's plot and environment. (How they lived and what they did and the story itself). This was a highly enthralling movie.

It really holds ones attention (Provided you are intelligent enough, or a movie buff enough, to actually enjoy movies where thinking and pondering are) required. The acting was good, the cast didn't have any bad participants, the story, though taking the first act to really settle in, (Considering you are baffled at the beginning as to who, what and how these guys are living and why) continues on to really engage your senses and keeps you wondering how this is all gonna end, especially since you know it's not going to be a happy ending by any means. The end did bring me to unexpected tears (I didn't realize I was as engaged as I turned out to be until the tears came at the end...or shall I say both endings).

I'll restate my first thought, I think a LOT more emotional engagement would have been accomplished had their been more backstory about how these two brothers became such damaged individuals, even a SMALL amount of further revelations regarding their tween years in "the home", which seemed to be some sort of ?orphanage? Type place, but even still, I found the movie very thought provoking, sad, and heartbreaking on several fronts. Both these brothers were terribly damaged and lost in this world, almost seemingly without any real ability to live in it, I'd really like to know how they became to such a state of damaged and doomed yet still innocent and good guys...I am very glad I bought it and can say I've experienced this film.

Wow. This was much better than I expected

I have to say; I am impressed. If you're looking for a hollywood smash, this isn't for you. But if you love a complicated slow burn, with some unexpected twists. This movie is definitely for you.


Quite awful film with weak story line, desultory acting and lack of direction.
