Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Sicario (2015)

Directed by Denis Villeneuve

Starring Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin, Victor Garber

Showcases the complexity of the drug problem, like Traffic, and also told in a similarly gritty tone. Despite the grit, Villeneuve has this movie nicely polished. Tension in a few scenes is fantastic. Exquisite photography, with some great night and thermal vision effects. Couple of minorly awkward moments with dialog.

Del Toro kills it, so to speak, in a supporting role. Blunt is merely a vehicle for him, both in character and in performance. Always love Garber.
