Only a Pawn in the Game
A Speaks Movie Review
★★★★ out of ★★★★
"Why am I here?"
This is an actual question asked by FBI Agent Kate Macer (Emily Blunt) in Denis Villeneuve's latest twisty tale of the worst of humanity, Sicario. He's taken on the sordid past of a Middle Eastern immigrant in 2010's Incendies, the lengths a father will go to save his child in 2012's Prisoners, and the dueling personas of a man and his doppelganger in 2013's Enemy. That question could've been (and may have been) spoken by any of the characters in any of his films at one point or another. In Sicario, his dive into the world of Mexican drug cartels, that question is everything.
