A showpiece for four character actors to do some supremely impressive work.

Sprawling, skewed, revisionist Western from a French director.

The film has action and lots of loud gunplay, but Audiard's direction tends to tease out the story's quieter moments, favoring characterization and dialogue.

A revisionist Western road movie comedy with a heaping side of existential drama and great performances.

It's a warped dream of the Western that successfully subverts and delivers a ravishingly beautiful spectacle.

The Sisters Brothers might have some of the conventions of a typical western, but it surpasses them with a surprising touch of warmth and humanity. [Full Review in Spanish]

Audiard...charms the film with a sense of half-witted adventure, filling its pages with amusing and horrifying tableaus of accidental perils.

There is much to admire about The Sisters Brothers; the powerful performances, the beautiful cinematography, and the statement on violence in the Old West.

Withholding the basics we expect from a western - poetic violence, heroic or sinister tableaux of men on horseback - started to seem like the whole point.

This is a very gritty and dirty western, not the romantic kind of story seen in traditional westerns, but it is also quirky and funny at times, despite all the violence.

Audiard's resulting egg dish might include a few wayward ingredients too many, but on the whole, it adequately fills your belly.

Conveys most of the book's darkly comic charm while presenting a minor spin on the Western formula... A diverting lark.

John C. Reilly rises to profound levels in this thinking man's western. At least that's what I think it is.

His [Reilly's} emotion spills out of every corner of the film and he uses his odd kind of charm to hook you to his journey.

Don't expect happy endings because the best you'll get is bittersweet. This renders everything that much more authentic, though.

Alexandre Desplat's energetic, wistful score reverberates, like the film itself, with both hopeful optimism and resigned melancholy.

A well-cast picaresque Western with a little existential angst amid the shootouts.

It's a Western. We're starved for a good one. This isn't it but - hey - it's a Western. BTW, John C. Reilly is REALLY good in this.

Admittedly low-impact, but moviegoers willing to saddle up will be compensated with the company of one of the year's finest casts.
