Review: Sicario (2015)

Sicario (2015)

Apparently it means “hitman”, yet curiously this isn’t a film about hitmen insofar as it’s ostensibly a US/Mexico cartel war where Emily Blunt has volunteered to be a part of a crack team led by Josh Brolin to set off some fireworks over the border, with the hope that it’ll smoke out and expose the main cartel overlord. 354 more words

Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas (1998)

Hunter S. Thompson’s semi-autobiographical novel and essay on the emptiness of the American dream in post sixties Las Vegas is brought to life by Terry Gilliam in a way very few could’ve managed; his mixture of lurid visuals, surreal humour and celebration of the grotesque captures its spirit perfectly. 184 more words


Sicario Review: On the Border of Greatness

Sicario was yet another film that escaped my grasp in 2015. Made by Denis Villeneuve, one of my favorite directors, Sicario follows Kate Macer (Emily Blunt) as she finds herself involved in some shady anti-cartel operations on the Mexico-American border in Arizona. 602 more words
