It's getting good reviews...it deserves GREAT reviews! (by Stay_away_from_the_Metropol)
Was not totally sure what to expect going into this, considering all the good-but-not-great reviews along with a trailer which fell rather flat, but it far surpassed my expectations. It is a flawless film, and definitely one of the best movies I have seen come out in 2018. It is a film with pristine balance and dynamic, and it's directed with great discipline. This is a fantastic first impression of director Jacques Audiard for me - starting with a masterpiece is a strong way to start! All 4 of the lead actors kill it and have incredible chemistry together. John C. Reilly puts in quite <more>
possibly his finest dramatic performance. Joaquin Phoenix fulfills yet another classic character for the books. Jack Gyllenhaal is astonishing in a completely new way, and his bromance with Riz Ahmed feels so right. The film starts out relatively slow as you would expect any movie taking place in the 1800's to do, but once the ball started rolling...I chuckled endlessly, I wondered, I worried, I cried, I was touched. There's not much more endearing than watching John C. Reilly learn what a toothbrush is and use one for the first time! A+ movie! Go see this movie!
Jake and Riz have a formidable bond! (by rahulshrestha-53145)
I had an opportunity to watch it early at TIFF 2018, so please ignore the average low imdb rating. Audiences gave "The Sister Brothers" a five-minute standing ovation following its debut at the Venice Film Festival. To summarize this movie, its a old Western ramble that's super funny, smart and watchable. It's utterly strange, utterly lovely postmodern Western Jake! What can't this guy do? Ahmed brings depth and texture, plus a winning idealistic vibe, to what could have been a bland straight-man role. But As good as the others are, this is John C Reilly's film. FYI, <more>
The Sisters Brothers doesn't have the same vibe as, say, Unforgiven, but it has the same quality of making us look at things from a different perspective.
American Grit & French Wit Combine (by Raven-1969)
American grit and French wit, sensibility and cinematic prowess combine in this unique and alluring form of the traditional western. It is about time. The results are spectacular.Bounty hunters Eli and Charlie are brutal, efficient and effective. Charlie, often drunk, is impulsive and cynical, while Eli is more thoughtful and emotional. During the Gold Rush of 1851 they are trailing their mark from Oregon to San Francisco. Along the way they encounter thugs, spiders, mercury and frontier medicine at its best or worst , and grapple with their fears and fantasies. Eli has strong feelings that <more>
violence invites more violence and attempts to get his brother to quit while they are ahead. Charlie, however, prefers action and meeting fears and uncertainties head on.There was a genuine and spontaneous expression of love for the film from the audience at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival. From the flashes of black powder in night to the music, cinematography, twists in the plot and quotes from Thoreau, there are so many aspects of the film from which to derive pleasure. The all-star cast includes Joaquin Phoenix Charlie , John Reilly Eli , Jake Gyllenhaal and Riz Ahmed. Reilly and Phoenix work extremely well together and the film is worth watching just to see their chemistry. The filmmakers provide realistic and refreshing portrayals of 1850s western hygiene or lack thereof , clothing fashions, fighting, sex and roleplay, the environment and even bird songs. Modern language is employed, rather than awkward and confusing attempts to employ historical words and phrases that audiences no longer understand the meaning of.From the director of amazing films including Dheepan, Rust and Bone and Cannes Grand Prix winner Un prophete. Audiard said he intended to show what regular life in the West was like in 1851 and he succeeded. The Sisters Brothers was shot in Spain and France, with sets in Romania, but there was no way I could tell if Audiard did not say so. Something I do not often realize, but the editing is crisp and remarkable. The scenes seem so natural in their order. The film is based on Canadian author Patrick deWitt's award winning novel.
Jacques Audiard joins Hollywood with a singular western (by lucaslmblackbird)
Jacques Audiard, one of the best french directors Dheepan, Rust & Bone, A Prophet... , is making a western, which is the most American genre of movies. True there are amazing rides, beautiful landscapes not american for the most and rough violence. However, the core of the movie remains the characters, their relationships. It's where you realize that Audiard & Bidegain wrote a deep and moving story about two brothers. You can buy a ticket only because of the cast, which dazzles in this picture, from the plain Jake Gyllenhaal to the fantastic John C Reilly.
Thoughtful Western (by sharkfinsoup)
Wow! I went to see this knowing that horses would be ridden shots would be fired, and blood would be spilled, but not much else. I put my trust in Jacques Audiard, my favorite French director, directing his first English-language film. This is rich with moral complexity, like some of his earlier films, like "A Prophet" and "Read My Lips."This is a western that has a lot of action, as do most. But it's as much character-driven as it is plot driven. I especially liked John C. Reilly as Eli, the older, and much more mature of the two Sisters brothers. The rest of the cast <more>
is outstanding...especially Joachim Phoenix as the other brother, Charlie, and Jake Gllendaal, as a frenemy.It's also interesting to see things that were new, or new-ish inventions, that were mostly unknown to people of 1852, when the film is set. Things like toothbrushes and flush toilets.A satisfying film, with food for thought at the end.
What a beautiful movie. The cast, the story, the background, the pictures, the music, everything is perfect
One of the Best Westerns in Years (by Zachary_goodwin)
The Sisters Brothers is a superb narrative driven western that doesn't hold back on it's true colors. John C Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix star as an incredible dynamic brother duo, working as assassins chasing Riz Ahmed along with Jake Gyllenhaal, a pair recent pair from Nightcrawler 2014 . With outstanding performances all around, the actors create a terrific sense of realism in the relationships between characters, John C Reilly stands out, as he delivers one of his most outstanding serious and heartfelt performances yet. The film takes it times establishing itself as a true but <more>
unique western with charm and intensity, but the film hits it's prime in the third act delivering brutal and vigorous scenes. The score fits perfectly into the vibe and tone and elevates scenes to higher and more emotionally gripping spectacle. The cinematography is also notable, with exception use of gun flashes in the dark, and alluring composition. As an entirety, the film is extremely compelling and is one of the best westerns in the past decade.
A dark and nihilistic western thick on dialogue and atmosphere. (by scb_coldsteel)
So I saw The Sisters Brothers at the theater. I really didn't know what to expect from the movie going in. The trailer made it seem to be a strange buddy comedy western, but I'm a fan of all of the actors so I wanted to give it a chance. Thankfully this was a case of an absolutely misleading trailer. I really enjoyed the end product and think this is one of the best westerns made in years.The movie is a gritty and at times nihilistic western heavy on atmosphere and dialogue. The film tells two parallel stories that eventally connect as the bounty hunters the Sisters Brother chase <more>
after their prey a scientist who has discovered an efficient way to find gold. Along the way both parties encounter struggles that really emphasize the hardships of that era. This is not the kind of western with good and bad guys. Everyone is morally grey and is just trying to survive the best they can.Anyone looking for an grand and extravagant plot should look elsewhere. The movie is far more about the journey than the destination. The initial conflict acts as a MacGuffin. The real meat of the plot is more of a character study on the brutality of the wild west and the impact it has on the individual. The film plays with traditional Hollywood tropes and the audience's own expectation to craft it's own unique voice of the era.The brutal nature of the film was one of my favorite parts. The film really ripped away the glamour of a silver screen western and left it bleeding on a table. The movie makes it clear that life was hard, fast, and cheap. A random spider bite, visit to the doctors, or drunken hangover on a horse could easily end a person's life. There was no time for finding something to make you happy when everyday was a struggle to survive. This added realism really captured the nihilistic feel of the movie and added a bleak and somber tone to the film's progression.The film was also very well directed and shot. The cinematography of the action scenes were fast and fluid, but never felt choppy. This by no means the kind of western with epic battles, but the action suited the overall tone of the film. The director also really did a good job with the set pieces as you really felt like you were in the wild west. The film was exceptionally well shot. The films at times was absolutely stunning to look at. The film also provides an excellent score to match the intense atmosphere the film cultivates.Acting wise John C Reilly stole the show. It's always nice to see him in films like this to remind everyone what kind of range he has as an actor. Joaquin Phoenix also delivers as the alcoholic and and fast tempered brother. Jake Gyllenhaal was solid as expected, but didn't really stand out in any way in the film. Still I don't have a single complaint about the acting in the film. Everyone did their jobs perfectly.The film certainly was a very slow burn. It was heavy on dense dialogue and required quite a bit of attention. These are not negatives in my book as they were intentional, but this will not make people happy who are looking for a more traditional western. I will say that the film could have been cut down twenty or so minutes to speed up the flow of the plot. This slight pacing issue did make the film drag at times. The plot structure may be a bit of a turn off for some as well. The bleak and nihilistic flow of the film that puts the initial conflict as secondary may come across as anti-climatic for some.In a lot of ways this is one of my favorite westerns I've seen in years. I love the actors, but it's the directors masterstrokes that really makes this movie stand out. It was all around one of the best made movies I have seen all year. It certainly had its flaws and it is not going to make anyone happy if they are expecting a traditional Western, but for those who care more about the journey and atmosphere this movie is for you. Unfortunately this movie is bombing in the box office, but it certainly deserves some praise for its accomplishments. A 8.25 out of 10.
Just came from the cinema! Totally enjoyed this. Storywise it delivers what's expected by a good ol' western: a slow yet steady storytelling with gunmen, brothels, chasing, gold and whisky. Actors were great, the bond between the brothers felt very convincing! Creative filming, nice soundtrack and a very autentic feel to it overall. If you're in the right mood, relaxed and feeling it: kick back and enjoy this great picture!
