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.

There is much to admire about The Sisters Brothers; the powerful performances, the beautiful cinematography, and the statement on violence in the Old West.

Withholding the basics we expect from a western - poetic violence, heroic or sinister tableaux of men on horseback - started to seem like the whole point.

This is a very gritty and dirty western, not the romantic kind of story seen in traditional westerns, but it is also quirky and funny at times, despite all the violence.

"The Sisters Brothers" feels like a movie in search of a point.

Audiard's resulting egg dish might include a few wayward ingredients too many, but on the whole, it adequately fills your belly.

Conveys most of the book's darkly comic charm while presenting a minor spin on the Western formula... A diverting lark.

John C. Reilly rises to profound levels in this thinking man's western. At least that's what I think it is.

His [Reilly's} emotion spills out of every corner of the film and he uses his odd kind of charm to hook you to his journey.

Don't expect happy endings because the best you'll get is bittersweet. This renders everything that much more authentic, though.

Alexandre Desplat's energetic, wistful score reverberates, like the film itself, with both hopeful optimism and resigned melancholy.

A well-cast picaresque Western with a little existential angst amid the shootouts.

It's a Western. We're starved for a good one. This isn't it but - hey - it's a Western. BTW, John C. Reilly is REALLY good in this.

Admittedly low-impact, but moviegoers willing to saddle up will be compensated with the company of one of the year's finest casts.

October 19, 2018
Ultimately a story about brotherhood, friendship and the insecurity of life in a violent place, the film injects a sweetness and innocence into the genre, mostly through one stellar performance by John C. Reilly.

Rosencrantz & Gulidenstern Go West.
October 18, 2018
The Sisters Brothers has uncommon depth but routinely cheapens it with overeager or expository dialogue.
October 18, 2018
Like an unfamiliar horse, the gait of "The Sisters Brothers" takes a little while to get used to, shifting between extreme violence and gentle character comedy. But it makes for a memorable ride.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
