Tyler Beck’s review published on Letterboxd:
I’m not sure what I expected from Sicario, but holy shit! I did not expect the movie that I saw. Really great fucking movie. Loved Brolin. Thought Emily Blunt was really good. And Benicio.... whooo buddy. Deakins killed it as always and It looked amazing. But I just felt like the MVP of the film was the director (Denis Villeneuve). The tone and pace were so well executed. There was a perfect balance of surprise, confusion and resolution. Like, the film stayed just far enough ahead of me to keep me guessing and thinking, without leaving me too confused. If that makes sense.
Overall, I thought it was great.
