Emily Blunt unforgettable in original thriller – Aftonbladet

Thriller It is in fiction as in reality.

There are men that bothered. As to violence. Running around with guns. As well, at times, saving or attempting to save humanity from the misery.

There are exceptions.

Jodie Foster in “Silence of the Lambs” (1991). J essica Chastain “Zero Dark Thirty” (2012). And Emily Blunt “Sicario”.

This is also the Canadian Denis Villeneuve a director who uses the Hollywood film muscles to do so headstrong films as the commercial the system allows. As Oscar-nominated “Incendies” (2010) and the thriller “Prisoners” (2013). Both – movies. Along with “Sicario” a loosely cohesive trilogy questioning what a life is worth and whether it is right to retaliate.

Sicario is slang hitter in the environments The film is set in the border region between the US and Mexico.

Emily Blunt plays Kate Macer, an FBI agent with hard luggage has had to fight hard to make a career in a macho world. We meet her first time in a crackdown against a Mexican drug cartel in the Arizona desert. Brutal and shocking.

And then escalate the violence just up. Josh Brolin mysterious character, he says he is working higher up in the US government hierarchy, hires Kate Macer for a special mission whose purpose is to get on top and at least try to reduce drug trafficking between the two countries.

It has also Benicio Del Toro character, who claimed to be a former Mexican prosecutors.

The operation is complicated. By challenging a Mexican drug lord, should we try to access an even bigger villain. As the spectators get to sit on your toes to keep up with all the tours in the scheme.

But it’s also what makes “Sicario” different from other thrillers. The people in the center are multifaceted. It is not entirely clear as a bell who are the good guys and the evil side. And Villeneuve do not work like other directors. One of the film’s coolest action scenes take place not during a car chase, but when the cars are stuck in a hopeless traffic jam!

But above all stepping Emily Blunt this as one of his generation’s best and most expressive actresses. Her strong portrait of a FBI agent is unforgettable.
