New Hell or High Water featurette looks at how David MacKenzie visualised the film


Hell or High Water was a great movie. It made my Top 10 of 2016 and it is now out on Blu-ray and DVD.

StudioCanal have sent over this rather cool exclusive featurette that looks at director David MacKenzie’s on-set style and how he managed to visualise the film and some of it’s more intense action sequences.

A story about the collision of the Old and New West, two brothers—Toby (Chris Pine), a straight-living, divorced father trying to make a better life for his son; and Tanner (Ben Foster), a short-tempered ex-con with a loose trigger finger—come together to rob branch after branch of the bank that is foreclosing on their family land. The hold-ups are part of a last-ditch scheme to take back a future that powerful forces beyond their control have stolen from under their feet.

Vengeance seems to be theirs until they find themselves in the crosshairs of a relentless, foul-mouthed Texas Ranger (Jeff Bridges) looking for one last triumph on the eve of his retirement. As the brothers plot a final bank heist to complete their plan, a showdown looms at the crossroads where the last honest law man and a pair of brothers with nothing to live for except family collide.
