Duke's Pursuit is a thriller/dark comedy set amongst the vast Icelandic landscape. A revenge-obsessed industrialist hunts a former colleague and forms a partnership with an unlikely ally.
"Dark wit, sharp dialogue, vivid characters and some excellent cinematography combine to create a potent but quirkily-comic drama."
"In terms of style this short is reminiscent of the Coen Brother’s with its snappy dialogue and dark humour. The cinematography is also in the same vein with fantastic landscape shots as well as framed interior shots. For a 16 minute short there was a surprising amount of character development from visual and spoken cues. In addition the more subtle cues such as body language made the film have more depth than would usually be present in most of this length."
