Denis Villeneuve is a director that gets alot of praise, i began noticing it after Prisoners came out, that was a damn fine film but it didn't make me want to go watch his older french canadian films, Sicario however did. This film is intense, it is intense from the moment it begins and doesn't let go of its tight grip for two hours. The film is humorless and doesn't have light moments but for a film like this, it works, it is suspposed to be tense, it is gripping and action packed, action packed in a non action sort of way, it has great amounts of blood, it is also thought provoking as all hell knowing that the shit that happens in the film really goes on. There are only two redeeming characters, those being in the FBI as the cartel & the CIA are both equally cruel . Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, Daniel Kaluuya & Benicio Del Toro are all fantastic in this, easy ocsar nods for Del Toro, Brolin & Blunt. IT is awesome that we are getting gripping thrillers like this right now, it is a type of film that a little over a decade ago could have been dull but it came out at the right time.
I am a filmmaker from Omaha, plan on starting production on my first feature in Spring of 2010. I am a huge film geek especially horror, i love the Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Beatles, Lost, stand up comedy and reading.
