Highly Suspect Reviews: The Sisters Brothers

Eli and Charlie Sisters (John C. Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix) are very different people but they are brothers and they do work together as assassins. It’s the old west and gold fever is high. Their boss (Rutger Hauer) assigns them a task: find Riz Ahmed who is a scientist who developed a formula to find gold, and do whatever it takes to get it out of him. With the help of a Pinkerton detective (Jake Gyllenhaal), they might just get the job done but, with expected hijinx on the way. Sounds like an action-comedy-western, right? Apparently not so much. Listen to Beau and Ben discuss this unusual anti-trope film.
