6.25PM, FOXTEL PREMIERE ★★★★
In Sicario, we have one of the best films of 2015 hitting us right between the eyes. So brace yourself for what is a minor masterpiece about one of the major issues of our time: the war on drugs. Director Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners) takes us to where he believes the height of the fighting is currently at its most intense. The battle zone is a small cross-section of the border where Texas meets Mexico. Emily Blunt stars as a
low-level FBI agent invited to join a black ops project whose prime architects (played by Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro) are working to a radical new agenda. A devastating piece of work that casts an intimidating spell.
