    The Sisters Brothers

    ★★★

    "We can kill anyone we want here!"

    One of my favorite genres, a talented director, a bunch of great actors... I was excited to catch The Sisters Brothers and genuinely surprised to see my local cinema airing it at all in the first place, considering it's just an ordinary mall theatre that usually has just the big hits.

    The fourth entry in the A Star is Born Cinematic Universe, Bradley Cooper's directorial debut and Lady Gaga's (née Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta's) acting debut, 2018's A Star is Born is a smash success and just as fresh and exciting as Judy Garland's sensational turn in the 1950s.

    Though having more in common with the coked-up 70s version with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson in terms of content and…
