Hell or High Water

Directed by David Mackenzie
Genre: Heist, Crime
Running time: 102 minutes
Released: 2016
Produced by Sidney Kimmel Entertainment

Toby is a divorced father who's trying to make a better life for his son. His brother Tanner is an ex-convict with a short temper and a loose trigger finger. Together, they plan a series of heists against the bank that's about to foreclose on their family ranch. Standing in their way is Marcus, a Texas Ranger who's only weeks away from retirement. As the siblings plot their final robbery, they must also prepare for a showdown with a crafty lawman who's not ready to ride off into the sunset.

Hell or High Water is the best Western film I have seen all year. The film is almost perfectly made. Not overly ambitious, it knows exactly what it should do without overreaching.
