A Constant Visual Feast

Mojave-Poster“This has been a good month for moviegoers craving celebrations of machismo. First, Alejandro González Iñárritu’s desperately masculine, Oscar-nominated The Revenant went wide. Then, Michael Bay’s 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi opened and fizzled in the same weekend. Now, The Departed screenwriter William Monahan’s second directorial effort, Mojave, joins the fray with a naked reverence for manly men peddling their manliness in the movie biz. The film lacks the brazen dick-swinging of 13 Hours and the bravura craftsmanship of The Revenant, but Monahan is something neither Bay nor Iñárritu aspire to be: He’s honest, and his movie is honest by consequence.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
