“Probably the best cinematography of this whole year. Roger Deakins is an absolute maestro. Music and sound combo of the movie added to the tension. Johann Johannssonu0026#39;s score is another exciting driving force upon which the film is carried. It was powerful. Incredible action-thriller. It was extremely dark. Not color wise, but the subject matter. Villeneuve really knows how to take the most vile subjects and turn them into intense n dark cinema. The acting was top notch especially Del Toro. He is comfortable with this sort of material and it really shows. I hav always been a fan of Brolin after no country for old men. His character was so relaxed n mean with those slip ons quiet opposite to del torou0026#39;s who u slowly get to know as the movie unfolds. Del torou0026#39;s character was emotionless and relentless. It is his best performance to date. The only scene i couldnu0026#39;t digest was the dinner scene. I turned my eyes n was shocked for few mins.”
