WED­NES­DAY SI­CARIO

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

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.
