Sicario – Welcome to Juarez

a sicario


Nothing will make sense to your American ears…  but in the end you will understand. – Alejandro Gillick

Directed by Denis Vileneuve, Sicario is a thrilling cinematic experience that leaves you feeling grateful to go home to your abode of safe, peaceful slumber. Co stars Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and the riveting Benicio Del Toro deliver strong performances in this Oscar contender. Much adoration for the musical composition by Johann Johannsson who set an ambience forever memorable in soundtrack history.

Sicario opens with a nightmarish look at the battle between U.S. law enforcement and the Mexican drug cartels along the Arizona border. While tracking leads in a kidnapping case, FBI agent Kate Macer (Emily Blunt) and her team make the horrific discovery of a mundane Arizona home that has been serving as a cartel graveyard. The trauma of that event stokes agent Macer’s burning need for justice, making it easy for a gleeful and mysterious middleman named Matt (Josh Brolin) to recruit her onto his covert anti-cartel task force.

Long before Kate even knows what’s what, she finds herself sitting beside an even more mysterious veteran named Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) and hustled onto a plane bound for the bowels of Juarez, Mexico, to hold her own with some of the cartel’s scariest men. As soon as the plane touches down in Juarez, Kate watches as the rules of law, order and justice so common to us all, melt away before her very eyes. Men like Matt and Alejandro know how dirty the hands must get in order to stop the cartel, but Kate can not truly accept or believe this world really exists, never mind being thrown into the middle of it.

In time Kate sees things she should never have seen becoming  a victim of circumstance and situation she has no power over. It leaves us all wondering where it all might end here, there and everywhere. Sicario opts to raise awareness about the very real war being fought along the US southern borderlands, and forces the frightening consideration of all casualties  left in its wake. At a glance one tangible plot about a Juarez family, seems vague at first, but by the end of the movie, they bring it back around to the main plot line to create a final scene that has nothing to do with our main characters, but speaks volumes about what the themes of their journey and conflicts mean to a real world situation.
