One of the most acclaimed directorial debuts of recent years, and the winner of the coveted FIPRESCI Prize in the Un Certain Regard section of the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, Bogdan Miric's Dogs is the most haunting and gruesome Western to come out of Europe in decades. Roman returns to the land he has just inherited from his grandfather to sell the vast, desolate property. He is warned by the local cop, however, that his grandfather was a gangster and his men will not let go of the land.
"Shot in heat-stricken widescreen and unadorned with music or other distractions, 'Dogs' oozes tension." -Peter Debruge, Variety
