Hell Or High Water - 2016

I'm not a big fan of robbery movies or even guns in scripts at all. However this movie more than compensates for a fairly pedestrian story with exquisite photography that captures the bigness of Texas.

Jeff Bridges is a poignant addition, playing a role that squeezes a dimension of acting out of him that we haven't seen before, though he's much older and I guess so am I.

"The only way to do that was to keep a shot longer than it could hold and finding something that was almost so banal that you had to wait long enough for what the visual interest would be".
