Hell or high water
Film

No Country for Poor Men

Like a slow, rumbling thrum, the inevitability of Hell or High Water’s final act patiently chugs at you. One of those rare, gritty, morally-serpentine thrillers, writer Taylor Sheridan’s script weaves together a tale of outlaws and economic oppression.

The first half hour or so felt as if it was setting up the best, most original comedy of 2016. Eventually, Don’t Think Twice settled for “existential crisis about adult-ing in New York” territory so “by the numbers” that I was amazed Lena Dunham hadn’t shown up…until Lena Dunham actually showed up.
