Movie Review: Hell or High Water

18 August 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hell or High Water succeeding in conning me, an innocent bystander, within the first five minutes of the film. As the screen lights up, viewers are immediately catapulted into a high-speed, ski-masked getaway – settling in for two hours of aggressive antics between a pair of stubble-faced, sooty, Levi-swagged, mustachioed criminals.

Or so we thought. Hell or High Water isn’t going to give you a cheap thrill ride and send you home packing. This movie’s more than a Robin Hood-turns-horse opera, and these West Texas bank robbers aren’t just your go-to, shoot-em-up, bad-boy bandits. These guys – Toby and Tanner Howard – are brothers. And what’s more? They’re brothers with a well-thought-out plan to rob a number of banks to halt Texas Midland’s impending foreclosure on their family home. “Which banks are the Tanner brothers planning to rob to pay off Texas Midland before the foreclosure?“ you might ask. »

Nobody Likes the Banks in Third Trailer For ‘Hell or High Water’; Preview Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ Score

19 July 2016 7:19 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The third trailer has been released for Hell or High WaterStarred Up director David Mackenzie‘s familial outlaw tale of revenge and righteousness starring Chris Pine, Ben Foster, and Jeff Bridges. With less than a month away from release, this third trailer, shorter than the previous ones, is a more dialogue-constant approach, filling viewers into the plot instead of the pistolaro stylings of the first two.

We said in our review, “David McKenzie’s Hell or High Water is a gritty, darkly humorous, and fiendishly violent neo-western. Or, in other words, the type of film you might expect from a non-American director working in the United States. It borrows heavily from the Coen brothers and Cormac McCarthy, but it does so very well, thanks largely to a terrific script from Taylor Sheridan, the red-hot actor-turned-screenwriter who broke onto the scene last year with Sicario. It might usher in a »

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ ‘Hell or High Water’ Score: Listen to Two Excerpts from the Stirring Ost

13 July 2016 3:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” soundtrack is among the best, most frequently co-opted film scores of the last decade, and news of further collaboration between the two tends to be welcome among cinephiles. Their latest is David Mackenzie’s “Hell or High Water,” which premiered at Cannes in May ahead of its theatrical release next month. Pitchfork has excerpts from two songs.

Comancheria” and “Mama’s Room” are the tunes in question, both of them readily identifiable as the work of the Bad Seeds bandmates. Of their work, Mackenzie told Pitchfork that “What I love about Nick and Warren’s film music is that it’s epic and expansive without being grandiose. For me as a filmmaker this hits »

Luke Bryan Turned His Back on the All for the Hall Concert - and the Crowd Went Wild! (Let Us Explain)

13 April 2016 12:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The sold-out crowd at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena learned Tuesday night there are some things Luke Bryan just won't do. One is this: If Keith Urban and Vince Gill are in his backup band, he's not going to ignore them. That's why, halfway through a magical stripped-down acoustic version of "Strip It Down," Bryan simply turned around to face the two guitar masters behind him. "If I'm gonna play and sing with Keith Urban and Vince Gill," he announced between verses, "I want to watch them." Urban couldn't resist commenting on the about-face, suggesting with some Aussie sauciness, that the »

As Kiefer Sutherland, star of 24 and countless movies, preps the release of his debut album — an Americana and country outing dubbed Down in a Hole — he already knows what people might be thinking. "If I hear about an actor doing a music project, my eyes are the first to roll," he tells Rolling Stone. "It's been done before and, on some levels, not very well. A lot of actors make records but won't tour to support them or make videos, and it ends up not being serious. I felt strongly »

A stream of country stars took the stage Wednesday night to sing their thanks to songwriting legend Kris Kristofferson, but no one was more grateful than Eric Church, who said a Kristofferson song "saved my life." Starting out, "I had a rough time in Nashville," Church told the thousands who'd packed Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, "and I played the game where, if I get told 'no' one more time, I'm outta here." That "one more time" came during a meeting with a publishing rep, who listened to Church play "maybe half a song" and bluntly told him, "I don't know where »
