Hell or High Water 2016

hell-or-high-waterScottish director David Mackenzie has made his fair share of head-scratchers, from his poor concert rom-com  You Instead to his baffling sci-fi opus Perfect Sense. The further he gets from home, the better his films get, and his follow-up to Starred Up is his best to date. Jeff Bridges plays Marcus, the grizzled Texas Ranger on the trail of two bank-robbers Tanner and Toby (Ben Foster, Chris Pine), brothers who have reluctantly decided to operate on the wrong side of the law since their mother passed away. Taylor Sheridan’s script is peppered with memorable scenes and characters, including a couple of pithy waitresses, and neat reversals of expectations. And when the finale comes, it’s got the drive and violent verve of the best dime-store novels. Dismissed by some as a Coen Brother knock-off, Hell or High Water is an intense, thoughtful thriller with a unique atmosphere of its own.
