Jacques Audiard joins Hollywood with a singular western
29 September 2018 | by lucaslmblackbirdSee all my reviews

Jacques Audiard, one of the best french directors (Dheepan, Rust & Bone, A Prophet...), is making a western, which is the most American genre of movies. True there are amazing rides, beautiful landscapes (not american for the most) and rough violence. However, the core of the movie remains the characters, their relationships. It's where you realize that Audiard & Bidegain wrote a deep and moving story about two brothers. You can buy a ticket only because of the cast, which dazzles in this picture, from the plain Jake Gyllenhaal to the fantastic John C Reilly.
