HELL OR HIGH WATER holds up the classic American western to new heights. From a lean, mean script by Taylor Sheridan, David Mackenzie directs this cowboy crime story for a new generation - one that lives in debt to the economic collapse of modern times. Embodying the dusty desperation of men with nothing left to lose, Chris Pine and Ben Foster are brilliant as brothers seeking justice at any expense, as Jeff Bridges' weathered lawman defends the order - and the disorder of moral ambiguity.
