Storyline

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. Written by Anthony Gaudioso

Talk about striking oil!
17 December 2014 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This film jumped out among a sea of titles I've seen and reviewed over the last several years. The directors, The Gaudioso Twins, have created a tragically beautiful story. The structure is sound, following two clearly delayed and broken men through their equally treacherous fantasy/real life. The film felt strange to me, but good strange, like a dream within a dream tethered to hope and love. "I love you Dare"... "I Love you too Roost" - great lines and delivery. A must see, if you care to experience a precious and novel approach to the indie-noir-crime-drama!

Notable mention to the stylized directing, quick editing and powerful acting by Michael Bowen, James Gaudioso and Richard Roundtree.
