    Sicario 2015

    ★★★★★ Watched 02 Oct, 2015

    You may be seeing this 5 stars I'm throwing out right now and thinking "well, that's an overreaction." You're wrong though. It's not. For the most part, I've thought this through. Sicario is what I like to consider pure cinema. It achieves this in many ways from how I perceive it.

    Today, I embarked on a journey. A joint journey in which Gustav and I are very excited about. Over the next few weeks we will be going back and re-watching some of our all time favorite films. Today we began with the love of my life, Children of Men.

    When I was in the eighth grade, my love for films truly began. I was on my way to Florida on a family vacation and had rented some movies off…
