Hell or High Water (2016)

Director: David Mackenzie. Cast: Chris Pine, Ben Foster, Jeff Bridges, Gil Birmingham. 102 min. Rated R. Crime/Drama.

All the elements of a traditional Western (bandit brothers, small-town bank robberies, rude sheriff with a heart of gold, panoramic landscapes, climactic shootout) are here, and Jeff Bridges became one of those actors who makes movies awesome just by being in them, a long time ago. But eventually, I wasn't sure was this movie was bout. Racism? Greedy banks? Second Amendment rights? Jeff Bridges? Somebody needs to do something about the Tomatometer: 99%, for crying out loud.
