There is a lot going on with a lot of people in this movie, but gratefully there are only a few major plot lines to juggle. If you can keep it all straight, I believe you will be entertained by revisiting Downton and the excursion to France. Sure does look sumptuous and inviting in nearly every frame.
Sicario is a taut thriller about an FBI agent caught up in shady exploits in the war on drugs on the US Mexican border. Director Denis Villeneuve delivers a suspenseful, near flawless film full of moral conundrums coupled with Roger Deakins spectacular cinematography. The cast is spectacular, especially Emily Blunt—further proving she can do anything.
This is not a gory shoot ‘em film glorifying violence like a video game movie. Instead, we are thrown into a more realistic world depicting the ugly consequence of violence rather than celebrating it.
