Today’s cinematic oddball has all the Coen staples – quirky characters, meticulous mood and unpredictable twists and turns – but with a dash of a slow simmering story that makes the aud...

Today it’s all about a beaten, weathered, and sullen man who when properly pushed proves that you can’t count a lethal man out. Denzel Wa...
