D: David Michôd (War Machine, The Rover, Animal Kingdom).
S: Timothée Chalamet, Robert Pattinson, Joel Edgerton, Lily-Rose Depp, Sean Harris, Thomasin McKenzie, Tara Fitzgerald, Tom Glynn-Carney, Dean-Charles Chapman, Ben Mendelsohn.
Exhilarating. This has weight. The dialogue is mellifluous. The acting filled with gripping solemnity. The score skilfully both anchors and drives proceedings.
