Indie Film Friday: Sicario
Directed by: Denis Villenueve

I rented this and slacked on watching it but once I did I was not disappointed. Blunt is an amazing actress and Del Toro is always on point and their performances were amazing. The biggest complaint I have is the actual shooting of the film. Several scenes take place at night or at times when they are in places where light is limited. I get the authenticity but it was at times hard to see what was going on. I know sometimes the darkness thing can add but at times I felt like it took away from us seeing the performances. My complaint aside it is a great movie with a powerful story that keeps the viewer interested and intrigued about where the story will go next.
