4/5. I love it when a movie is so intense it creates 2 hours of silence! Emily Blunt is a superb counter to the stoic Benicio Del Toro. A really strong script and Smart cinematography make this a great watch.
There have been few stories more dramatic over the last few years than the narco-wars happening in Mexico. And there are few accounts more gripping than this piece by Patrick Radden Keefe on the hunt for El Chapo, the chief enforcer for the biggest drug-trafficking organization in history, the Sinaloa cartel. It seems too crazy to believe, but, of course, it’s real and all too tragic. —Dan Saltzstein, Assistant Editor
