the sisters brothers review

Jacques Audiard‘s The Sisters Brothers is an utterly strange, utterly lovely postmodern Western about two outlaw brothers and the two men they’re hunting. Dreamy, surreal and balancing darkness and light in equal measure, it’s a wholly unique, somewhat perplexing experience.

Sisters Brothers movie
