A very good movie

Posted : 1 month, 3 weeks ago on 29 January 2019 11:07

Since I’m a big fan of Jacques Audiard, I was quite eager to check his next directing effort. Well, I wonder how Audiard ended up making a Western as his first English-speaking feature but what was even more surprising was that it turned out to be one of the best Westerns I have seen in years.  Apparently, even though this movie had been very well received, it was still a flop at the box-office but, as far as I was concerned, I really loved the damned thing. The first thing that impressed me was that Audiard had managed to create such a convincing time and place. Then, there was such a top cast involved (John C. Reilly, Joaquin Phoenix, Jake Gyllenhaal, Riz Ahmed)  and they all delivered some solid performances. About the plot, I don’t think it really mattered since the whole thing was mostly about the mood and the characters involved.  Above all, I just loved the interactions involving Charlie and Eli. Indeed, these characters and their relationship was fairly complex and sometimes actually quite hilarious. Concerning the other couple John Morris / Hermann Kermit Warm, to be honest, even though they were also interesting, their relationship could have been more developed as they were not as fascinating as the Sisters brothers.  Anyway, to conclude, I really liked this Western a lot and I think it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre or if you are interested in Jacques Audiard’s work.

The Sisters Brothers review

Surprise ignored by Hollywood even Joachim and Gyllenhall are ok, but better is Reilly, the good bro just wanting to get back to home and ma. There´s another wonderful plot, the frustrated love story between Morris/Gyllenhall and Ahmed...
