Delightfully humourous, profoundly sad; The Sisters Brothers defies the Western genre to tell a soulful story about fraternal relationships and male ambitions. Review

As an R-rated, bawdy comedy, its vision is cripplingly limited, gambling so heavily on the intrinsic hilarity of puppets that the whole thing feels dramatically undercooked. Review

While it may not be Spielberg’s most ambitious movie, it is certainly among his most relevant: Expertly crafted, urgent, and worthy of your attention. Review
