Let me begin by saying that I love Hollywood’s new trend of making short, straightforward movies. You might be thinking, “What?! Making simple movies is not a new concept!” Are you sure? For many years, I have not seen a film shorter than two hours in length. A story should have a beginning, middle and end, yet filmmakers have been set on giving that beginning its own beginning, middle and end, and so on.
Hell or High Water proved that a good–no, excellent–film is possible in 102 minutes.
