John Hillcoat is one of the most underrated directors working today.
People that have seen his western, The Proposition, have been very adamant that it’s one of the best in the genre and his work on Lawless was entertaining and brutal.
He’s back with a crime thriller/action picture that looks like pure adrenaline. From the scenes of freeway shootouts to intense confrontations in red lit rooms, this one looks destined to stand out.
It’s our Wild Card this week because it could be as awesome as we hope it is, or fall flat on it’s face.
It was released overseas last week and word of mouth has been decidedly mixed. But here at Life at 24fps, we’re optimistic about it being another winner in Hillcoat’s filmogrpahy.
With a plot that involves heartless killers, corrupt cops, and Kate Winslet as a ruthless villain, this one practically begging for our money.
The cast is lead by Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Chitwel Ejiofor, Aaron Paul, and many others, and will definitely start a conversation when it’s released this Friday!
