12.30.17Amazon Instant Between Wind River, Blade Runner 2049, the Soldado trailer, and seeing a youtube video about neo-westerns and Taylor Sheridan's part in the resurgance, it put me in a mood to revisit this film. I think I liked it more this time around. It's so incredibly dark and Emily Blunt's arc is so harsh, Benicio's character so dangerous... the whole film feels dangerous. And the standout scenes like the border crossing and the opening raid and the tunnel scene are shot so incredibly well. It's a really chilling depiction of how brutal the war on drugs have become, but feels very authentic. Really talented people on all levels here.
12.28.15Internet I really wanted to see this because I think the Mexican drug wars are really fertile ground. Everyone's good in it, the music is really haunting and good (more like a horror movie than an action movie), excellent photography... but I think I overhyped it for myself because I had a sense of "that's it?" when it was over. I'm not sure what I was expecting... but I had a bit of wanting left over afterward, which is weird because I think everything about it was good solid filmmaking.
