Our short 2016 retrospective has come to an end with our review of the only Best Picture nominee from that year we didn’t already have a podcast review for, “Hell Or High Water” starring Chris Pine, Ben Foster & Jeff Bridges. Directed by David Mackenzie and written by Oscar-nominee Taylor Sheridan, this modern-day western was a surprise sleeper hit in 2016 and rode a wave of critical acclaim towards four Oscar nominations. How well does it hold up today? What do we think of its characters and themes? Tune in to find out all of this and more in our review. Joining me for this podcast retrospective review I have Amanda Spears, Josh Parham, Dan Bayer, Tom O’Brien & Patreon guest Giovanni Lago. The 2016 NBP Film Community Nomination ballots are live and can be voted on until November 20th so do be sure to check that out. Also check out our previous 2016 reviews of “20th Century Women,” “Paterson,” “Captain Fantastic,” “Hail, Caesar!,” “The Handmaiden” & “Florence Foster Jenkins.” Thank you!
