    Hell or High Water

    ★★★★½

    What a wonderful blueprint for a modern western.

    Ben Foster has been my favourite to play a de-hinged maniac probably since Alpha Dog. I don't think there's anything that will ever make me not love Jeff Bridges, especially if he's allowed to old-man-mumble.
