The Sisters Brothers
At first glance the Sisters Brothers, aka Eli (John C. Reilly) and Charlie (Joaquin Phoenix), are tough, flea bitten prairie assassins. But the more time you spend with them, the more you realise that this pair of firearm-packing, forty-somethings are actually childish, bickering improvisers who rarely know what they’re doing, nor why they’re doing it. But they are a hoot to spend time with, and the same is true of the film in which they appear.
Jacques Audiard’s dark Western is a terrific yarn about two uncivilised men grappling with the onset of civilisation.
