I’ve finally seen my first Denis Villeneuve film, and I won’t be watching it again!
Fear not though, for Sicario is a tense and very well put together piece that lives up to the hype as it questions a government’s methods and motivations.
So why no repeat viewings? Well, it’s not a nice film! The harshness is perfect for the subject matter, and is actually a huge compliment, but it’s also quite demoralising.
Initial concerns that the story was moving too slowly faded away as it all comes together strongly by the end, with Blunt and Del Toro standing out.
