Hell or High Water

Western Crime


 

Two brothers go on a bank-robbing spree in a desperate attempt to save their family's ranch.

Set in post-recession Texas, "Hell or High Water" is a gripping heist drama that plays out like a contemporary Western. A roster of sublime performances anchor a screenplay rich in dialogue and characterisation, fleshing out even the most of peripheral characters. Their relationships are acutely observed as it peels away the 'macho' from the main players, buoyed by a dark sense of humour and a moody score. Get drawn to the drawl.
