Jean-Paul Sartre’s seminal existentialist play No Exit shares a title with a newly-announced project starring Miles Teller and Josh Brolin, but perhaps it shares more? As firefighters heroically rushing into burning homes to rescue those trapped souls, do they not share the same flagrant disregard to the perils of death as the three damned souls trapped in Sartre’s banal Hell? Picture the sooty faces of Teller and Brolin, gleaming with sweat — the look in their eyes is not all that different from the despair visible in Joseph, Inès, and Estelle as they must reckon with their own wrongdoings.
‘Sicario’ is an exercise in prolonged tension like few others. Every moment from the first scene to the last is suspenseful. The opening, a deadly raid on a drug kingpin’s safe house establishes a terrifying precedent: In this film, violence can erupt at any time without any warning, and no one and nothing can be trusted. Having thoroughly unsettled the audience, director Denis Villeneuve keeps viewers on edge with shifty characters, sudden bursts of gunfire, and the careful use of a persistent, pounding score. Remember the scene in Boogie Nights where Alfred Molina is randomly tossing firecrackers at Mark Wahlberg and John C. Reilly? Sicario is like that scene for two straight hours with no “Sister Christian.” It is intense.
Hollywood has seen its fair share of movies where man attempts to conquer nature, only to find himself thoroughly humbled. Everest looks to continue that trend, putting one of the best ensembles in recent memory smack-dab in the middle of Mother Nature’s wrath. As the title implies, the film deals with an expedition up the world’s tallest mountain going oh-so-horribly wrong. As the trailer shows us, an Everest expedition going wrong looks like an incredible movie.
