HELL OR HIGH WATER
2016, CBS Films, 102 min, Dir: David Mackenzie

Desperate to keep their family farm afloat, brothers Toby (Chris Pine) and Tanner (Ben Foster) turn to bank robbery. They’re pretty good at it – but a pursuing Texas Ranger (Jeff Bridges) is pretty good at his job, too. Taylor Sheridan’s Black List-winning script features well-drawn characters and a piercing take on Western ideals in an era of reverse mortgages. “A thrillingly good movie — a crackerjack drama of crime, fear and brotherly love set in a sun-roasted, deceptively sleepy West Texas that feels completely exotic for being so authentic.” - Owen Gleiberman, Variety.

Christian Bale plays a wounded Civil War vet who sees a chance at prosperity in thief Russell Crowe, for whom Bale hopes to collect a reward when he delivers him to the prison train of the film’s title. In director James Mangold’s riveting remake of the 1957 classic, Bale and Crowe engage in a compelling battle of wits and guns that is both thoughtful character study and kinetic action film.
