Like most of Wes Anderson’s previous films, The French Dispatch is deliberately paced without ever becoming boring, quirky without ever being inaccessible and artistic without ever growing pretentious. It’s a cinematic treat enhanced by creative production design and a wonderful score by Alexandre Desplat. Fans of the director will be familiar with all his moves, but that doesn’t make them any less enjoyable.
Day of the Soldado is this potential Sicario trilogy’s attempt at doing the Dark Knight. It shares the same universe as the first film but is essentially another self contained story.
This is a very well directed and well shot film, actually all the tech stuff is great, editing, sound all top notch. I will also give the film a ton of credit for taking a well worn plot, the war against drugs and coming at it from a different angle.
Mambru is the reluctant leader in the group who is head of security and is probably the most grounded one out of the four who is attempting to remove a dead body out of a well using a pulley system and a car to lift the rather obese corpse.
Boasting some stunning visuals, sporadic bouts of violence and at times unbearable tension. The hugely impressive Sicario from Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) is a hard hitting thriller of a film that delves into the morality of the proxy wars being waged by US intelligence agencies against drug cartels in Mexico and the human effects on both sides of the border.
