Dune Week: Sicario (2015) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Wow Sicario was rather unexpected.  What a film – a tense, brutal and at time uncompromising look at the war against drugs on the borders of America. With a great cast (including Del Toro in a recent career best performance), some stunning cinematography, expert direction and a well paced 60’s style, Sicario easily jumps into my top 10 of 2015 and is for sure one of the best films of this year. Just be prepared for a film that at times is a hard watch.

Best Bit: Border crossing
