 The Duel feels like a movie that has a running inside joke with itself, and the point of watching is for the viewer to get inside of it, too. Only there's no laughing here: it's all just high cheekbones and unspoken misery. It's a bad sign when a viewer spends more time trying to figure out the exact lipstick used on the lead actress than actually paying attention to the movie itself.
