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.

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

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.

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

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

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.
