My favorite movie of 2017. I've become a big fan of Taylor Sheridan's screenwriting, having immensely enjoyed this movie, Sicario and Hell or High Water. I appreciate the gritty adult tone of his films, as opposed to the snarky, lightweight superhero movies that current audiences prefer, especially since this film happens to star Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch from the Marvel movies. Sheridan as a director is lacking slightly, however. His tight framing, constant handheld camera and quick edits give the film a made-for-cable feel as opposed to something truly cinematic. But it's a small price to pay for some seriously suspenseful crime storytelling. I look forward to his writing of Sicario 2: Soldado.
