Another Oscar-Nominated Movie

Posted Apr 8 2017, 1:19 am in , , , ,

Here’s another installment about the Oscar movies that I saw this year. The next on the list is Hell or High Water. I was surprised when I learned that this movie was on the list for Best Picture. It was a movie I enjoyed, but, to me, it doesn’t fit the Oscar mold. This movie takes place in West Texas where you will see a pumpjack like this one.

The  story features two brothers. One has just gotten out of prison. They are trying to save their deceased mother’s ranch by paying off a reverse mortgage. In order to do this, they need to rob several banks. I dislike movies where the protagonists are bad guys, but this was kind of a Robin Hood movie. The bad guys are trying to help someone with their ill-gotten gains.

My sister-in-law grew up in Post, Texas, and part of the movie takes place there. I’ve been to Post, but it was many years ago, and I wasn’t sure the scenes in the movie were actually shot in Post.

What do you think of movies that feature main characters who are doing unlawful things?
