Sicario
Dude, where’s my cartel?

Sicario

Plot
When FBI kidnap-response specialist Kate Macer (Blunt) begins working with two shady “Department Of Defense advisers” (Brolin and Del Toro), she finds herself on a morally blurred new front in America’s War On Drugs.


Verdict
A beautifully murky, hard-edged thriller. Quite simply, one of the best films of the year.
