Hell Or High Water is utterly fantastic. A new school western w/ an old school heist feel. This is a solid movie that harkens back to movies with good dialogue and small simple stories. It reminds you that you don’t need massive explosions and green screens to tell a damn good story. They don’t make movies like this anymore, guys.
Jeff Bridges is electric. Gil Birmingham is fantastic. Chris Pine haunting. Ben Foster is absolutely wonderful.
It’s no wonder I fell in love with this movie. It was written by the man who wrote Sicario, another utterly fantastic movie that the war on drugs on the US/Mexican border is never only black and white.
The dialogue in Hell Or High Water is poetry. The cinematography, breathtaking.
RUN to the theaters. You won’t regret it.
