At first Margaret and George Blackledge might be confused for Clark Kent's parents. After all, they are played by Diane Lane and Kevin Costner, both looking comfortably weathered like a favorite sweat…
The opening sequence of The Sisters Brothers is visually striking in what you cannot see. In the distance, flashes of gunfire light up complete darkness. You make out that some gunfighters are on the …
