Jacques Audiard (A Prophet,Dheepan) makes his first English-language film with this revisionist Western set in 1851. Eli (John C. Reilly) and Charlie Sisters (Joaquin Phoenix) are brothers and assassins, on the trail of a chemist (Riz Ahmed) who has a formula that can highlight gold in rivers.A detective (Jake Gyllenhaal) is hot on his trail too, but delivering him to their boss the Commodore (Rutger Hauer) will be less than easy.Adapting Patrick deWitts bestseller, Audiards film glimmers with wry humour, punctuated with bloody reality, echoing the way Robert Altman and the Coen Brothers have put new life into the Old West.Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly are frontier hit-men who meet their match int his beautifully odd horse opera ★★★★ Rolling Stoneoften hilarious, and always unpredictable, Jacques Audiards dark Western is a terrific yarn about two uncivilised men grappling with the onset of civilisation. ★★★★ Empire MagazineDirector: Jacques AudiardCast: John C. Reilly, Joaquin Phoenix, Jake Gyllenhaal, Riz AhmedRun time: 122 mins
