Hell or High Water (2016) Rated R

A divorced father and his ex-con older brother scheme in order to save their family ranch. Starring Dale Dickey, Ben Foster, and Chris Pine.

I was pleasantly surprised by this film. I thought it was going to be another modern western, but it goes much deeper than that. It has the classic case of cops and robbers, but the theme is more telling of a social and political message. While the film scratches these surfaces, it doesn’t go too deep into whether the characters make right or wrong choices. The characters are interesting and well-acted, making the film intriguing to watch. However, the film does struggle with artsy dilemmas the characters go through, and it would have been better in artistic design if the dilemmas were deeper. The story holds your attention with some great performances by the actors, making this film worth the watch.
