A pair of hard-luck West Texas brothers, played by Chris Pine and Ben Foster, rob small-town banks to cure their ills, and two wily Texas Rangers (Jeff Bridges and Gil Birmingham) hunt them down. Simple plot, but a topical screenplay by writer Taylor Sheridan (Sicario) and the concise, brutal direction of David Mackenzie make this a worthy neo-western, with enough social commentary to ring true. Mackenzie dots the landscape with a string of vivid mini-vignettes and colorful locals, like the gruff waitress at the T-Bone café, and the characters (with the possible exception of Foster’s hothead ex-con Tanner Howard) tone it down to match the grim, weary mood. Fits nicely into the same subgenre as No Country for Old Men (102 min).
