Scott Cooper United States, 2017

Ethan's rating of the film Hostiles

Christian Bale gives an incredibly intense performance in this great film from one of the greatest modern filmmakers Scott Cooper. This is a gripping road picture that has a lot to say about loss and grief and above all how we treat each other in the grand scheme of things. We are all shitty when it comes down to it but this film poses the question do we really have to be. At times it even has echoes of Peckinpah.
