The Press Reviews

  • A pleasing, lovingly crafted Western from a surprising source. Full Review

  • Audiard's storytelling has an easy swing to it, his dialogue is garrulous and unsentimental, and the narrative is exotically offbeat. Full Review

  • Joaquin Phoenix and John C Reilly are the western double act you never knew you needed (until now) in this exhilarating cowboy romp. Full Review

  • You don't need a deep love of westerns to get a kick out of Jacques Audiard's wry, surprising, and often plain hilarious frontier story. Full Review

  • The movie turns out, in the end, to have an idealised sense of closure in mind, one you both can and cannot see coming. Full Review

  • It's serving a reheated version of worn-to-the-bone male obsessions. And it made me wish, frankly, that I was seeing something bolder and newer. Full Review

  • Audiard plays to his past strengths as a poet of wounded masculinity; in its most touching moments, "The Sisters Brothers" is like a hangout movie on horseback. Full Review
