Do you like drugs? Then you'll probably really love Sicario, a brutal, haunting thriller about the war on drugs. It's probably one of the best films ever on the subject.
Joining me this week to talk about the film is This Is Dallas co-host Mike Marshall. Together, we break down the most shocking turns of events in the movie, as well as its overarching themes of how people come to terms with their own limitations and how blurred the line between right and wrong can get.
The real lesson here, we determine, is that there aren't any easy answers in life — something depicted quite well by the opposing views of this film's by-the-book Emily Blunt and by-any-means Benicio Del Toro.
Sicario is just a wonderfully complicated movie. It's beautiful to look at. And it's great to watch and great to talk about.
