Fifth about The Seventh

Sicario (2015)

SicarioSicario: Denis Villeneuve efficiently tells this grim, sad tale; it turns out to be a (purposefully) unpleasant experience, no matter how well-done. The gallery of characters is grey, but not really all that complex. It’s a good-looking cast; Benicio Del Toro plays well his cipher, and Emily Blunt is solid but unspectacular (her character’s motivations are murky, so she is not given much). Jóhann Jóhannsson’s bassy, repetitive score adds a lot to the film’s tension and bleakness. Roger Deakins’s camerawork is utilitarian; efficient but not visually showy.
