Hell or High Water (Mackenzie, 2016)

The personal is the political in this expertly crafted thriller. With exceptional performances all around (Jeff Bridges is, as usual, wonderful), this provides ample proof that America can still make great (anti-)Westerns. The dynamic between who is the robber and the victim is wonderfully played, with a refreshingly acute knowledge of America’s social and political history constantly bubbling in the background.
