Director: Denis Villeneuve, Judi Townsend,
A young female FBI agent joins a secret CIA operation to take down a Mexican cartel boss, a job that ends up pushing her ethical and moral values to the limit.
Gorgeously made, with a set piece taking place in tunnels underneath the border that conveys chaos without ever looking incoherent and a throbbing J�hann J�hannsson score that's the sound of very bad things on the horizon.
An unforgettable motion picture that should be on the must-see list for anyone who appreciates films that deal in grays rather than blacks and whites.
By the end, it packs a death stare so potent it will make you want to turn a blind eye to the shadowy brutality of its real-world horrors.
Succeeds in evoking the anarchic violence of the drug wars raging on both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border.
Within this dark epic of American failure lives an effective but decidedly minor vigilante flick.
