Movie Week with Cole Smithey: “Sicario” review

sicario review cole smithey

This week our itinerant movie reviewer Cole Smithey has nothing good to say about “Sicario.” Why does he hate it so much? Find out here.

aNewDomaincole-smithey — Well, I reviewed “Sicario” this week. A disappointment from start to finish, Denis Villeneuve’s attempting-to-be-edifying international drug thriller fails miserably by the social realist parameters it portends to fulfill with macho quasi-military bombast and blood-splattered spectacle. Watch my short video review of “Sicario,” with film clips, below.

My sleeper pick this week is “Everest.” My guilty pleasure is “Coming Home” and my must-have DVDs to get this week are “Day for Night,” “Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington DC” and “Werewolf Woman.”
For aNewDomain, I’m Cole Smithey.
