The Sisters Brothers

It is amazing what you can glean from a movie, even if you don’t particularly enjoy it.  The Sisters Brothers, Eli (John C. Reilly) and Charlie (Joaquin Phoenix, Don’t Worry He Won’t Get Far on Foot) are a pair of hired killers in 1850.  Charlie seems to really enjoy his work and Eli justifies his […]
