Cut Bank (2015)
Critic Consensus: Cut Bank contains typically outstanding work from its solid veteran cast, but it's lost in a dull morass of predictably derivative crime thriller clichés.

Critic Reviews for Cut Bank
Quite apart from the equally apparent lack of the Coens's extraordinary visual acuity, Cut Bank comes up short because it simply presumes that guilt and evil already live in town, just waiting for us to arrive and see the show.
Deficient in charisma, Hemsworth lacks both the grit and grin that his complicated role demands.
In this sort of film, plenty of characters hope to get out of their small-time town, while viewers hope to get out of the theater.
Like many of its brethren, the movie seems to love itself while hating its characters.
While there's some undeniably inherent joy in just seeing some of these great actors play off each other, the sum here is a shockingly dull affair, almost made more disappointing by the talent it wastes.
Audience Reviews for Cut Bank
Why have this talent on hand then saddle them with a generic paint by numbers script? Watchable only for the actors in it.
Some funny moments here and there, but this is no 'Fargo.' The great cast, all of whom deserved a better script, kept me slightly entertained throughout.
Great movie. Intriguing, interesting, very engaging with great performances by some great actors. Some dry humor thrown in to add some levity to the somewhat macabre story. Really enjoyed watching this.
