Beautifully-executed period piece

"I'm the one who's going to make your life real difficult if you don't tow the line, country boy."

Screenwriter Nick Cave and director John Hillcoat collaborated for the exceptional Aussie western The Proposition back in 2005, and Lawless reunites these two boundlessly talented professionals for another historical drama drenched in violence. Similar to The Proposition in terms of to... read more

Jack, Forrest and Howard Bondurant lived in a small town in Franklin County, Virginia, during a time when liquor was illegal but everyone just had to have it. The Bondurant brothers had the means to provide people with the finest moonshine around, but when Special Deputy Charlie Rakes wants a piece of their profit, the Bondurant brothers must be more discreet about their operations.

Another Prohibition era tale based on a true story, this one having being written up by the great grandson of one of the brothers in the story.
Its about the Bondurant Brothers, bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. It makes a great gangster tale that has immediately become one of my favourites.

Just when my faith in Shia LaBe... read more

LAWLESS is the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers: bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. In this epic gangster tale, inspired by true-life tales of author Matt Bondurant’s family in his novel "The Wettest County In The World", the loyalty of three brothers is put to the test against the backdrop of the nation’s most notorious crime wave.

" Cool. Cool. Cool. Prohibition era with characters that actually looked as dirty as the set? Nice. Tom Hardy was pretty fantastic and I really enjoy Shia LaBeouf in pretty much anything. That kid, Dane Dehaan (Cricket in this film; Andrew in 'Chronicle'), though...I think he's going to be the one to watch. Anyway, I enjoyed this gritty period piece to the very last moment."

A good movie

“Ever since he came up with the amazing 'The Proposition', all the following directing efforts delivered by John Hillcoat have generated some nice buzz before they were released but, eventually, none of them made much waves after all. This movie was a good example. I mean, it was not bad at all, it was actually pretty good but I can't say it really blew me away though. First of all, why did they change the title? Indeed, it used to be called 'The Wettest County in the World' and this working title sounded pretty awesome but they ended up with the rather bland 'Lawless'. Of course, who cares about the title anyway? Still, the whole thing looked really neat, there was a really nice soundtrack so the mood was pretty much pitch-perfect. Furthermore, Hillcoat had once again a pretty strong cast” read more

"3.1, Netflix Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf ja Jason Clarke ovat trokareita ja Guy Pearce on kulmakarvansa ajanut lainvalvojapahis. Elokuva on hieman väljähtäneen oloinen eikä onnistu luomaan kovin kiinnostavaa tunnelmaa Yhdysvaltojen kieltolain aikaisesta pula-ajasta, mutta näyttely pelaa ja ihan hyvin toteutettu väkivalta tuo jo itua tähän."
