Just saw Savages, easily the best movie Oliver Stone has made since the 90s. It’s a nice violent little piece of cinema trash that reminded me of True Romance and the lesser known but bloody fun film The Way Of The Gun. It has kinda all the things I like in a movie like this…a babe, a badass dude doing badass things, and a really good villain….which Benicio Del Toro delivers in spades. Really his Lado steals the movie. There’s some good action sequences, several fucked up torture scenes that remind me of why I never vacation in Mexico, and some commentary on the pointlessness of the drug war. Anyways it’s no work of art…but if you enjoy mayhem, drugs, and death with a little bit of love thrown in for good measure then check it out.
