THE SISTERS BROTHERS

THE SISTERS BROTHERS

Jacques Audiard · France/USA · 2018 · 122 mins · 14A
IMDbRotten Tomatoes

The title seems like a joke: How the hell did Charlie Sisters (Joaquin Phoenix) and his older brother Eli (John C. Reilly) grow up in the Old West with a last name like Sisters and not get ragged on to the point of madness? It’s 1851, and the siblings work as ruthless hired guns for their boss, Commodore (Rutger Hauer). Conflict escalates when their overlord sends them after Hermann Kermit Warm (Riz Ahmed, terrific), a mild-mannered chemist who has invented a magic elixir that, when poured on river rocks, will highlight any gold nuggets found within. The boss has sent along an advance man in the person of lawman John Morris (Jake Gyllenhaal) to deliver Warm to the two men.

Got that?

What raises the bar is the presence of Jacques Audiard in the director’s chair. A French auteur, known for such humanist dramas as A Prophet, Rust and Bone and Deephan, Audiard is making his first film in English — and it’s a western. Working from a script from the novel by Patrick deWitt, the filmmaker brings an outsider’s view to the genre, one that throws his movie off in the best possible way. Audiard won Best Director at the Venice Film Festival. You’ll have no trouble understanding why. Audiard sculpts his own unique vision, and it’s a knockout. It’s one of a kind.
