March 7, 2019
Reilly carries the film, with a performance that's elegantly caught between Eli's loyalty and his desire to be free of his crazy kinsman.

March 6, 2019
A film that is somehow at once brutal and nihilistic, beautiful, sweet and funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
March 5, 2019
A vision of two wayward souls that's downright haunting.

The Sisters Brothers is one of the hidden gems of 2018. It holds a great artistic value and it's still a lot of fun to watch.

The director manages to increase the dangerous and abrupt trip's feelings of discomfort and fatigue, while presenting a subtle metaphor of the horse as [the] animalization of the bounty hunter. [Full review in Spanish]

There is something different being said here about the way the West was won. It's a shame that [Jacques] Audiard takes so long to find his voice.

The Sisters Brothers pits abused, impulsive and damaged men whose currency in the world is an aptitude for killing against men of ideals, science, courtesy and reflection. They aren't burdened by being required to tell you something pretty.

Audiard plunges into the Western genre with conviction and panache, offering reasonably more than just the essential. It may be a passive film at times, but never exhausting.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

I wish that I could recommend this to everyone, but its charms are too slight for anyone but those who are most likely to hear its siren song
January 14, 2019
A showpiece for four character actors to do some supremely impressive work.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
January 6, 2019
Sprawling, skewed, revisionist Western from a French director.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
December 28, 2018
The film has action and lots of loud gunplay, but Audiard's direction tends to tease out the story's quieter moments, favoring characterization and dialogue.
December 14, 2018
A revisionist Western road movie comedy with a heaping side of existential drama and great performances.
December 7, 2018
It's a warped dream of the Western that successfully subverts and delivers a ravishingly beautiful spectacle.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

The Sisters Brothers might have some of the conventions of a typical western, but it surpasses them with a surprising touch of warmth and humanity. [Full Review in Spanish]
November 5, 2018
Surely not your typical Western...there were several times where it felt time to wrap it up...I didn't understand why the movie was still going, why were you still telling this story?
November 1, 2018
Audiard...charms the film with a sense of half-witted adventure, filling its pages with amusing and horrifying tableaus of accidental perils.
