The Sisters Brothers ★★★★½

Audiard’s Dheepan was such a clear homage to Ford that it’s doubly surprising that this explicit western is so idiosyncratic. I haven’t read the source novel, but many of the director’s obsessions (e.g. harm to limbs, monstrous father figures) are given a particularly florid expression here. A strong cast helps to guide each of the wild tonal shifts as strongly as Desplat’s strong score.
