#40: “Sicario”

It may seem like we picked “Sicario” to be topical, what with all the talk of American border security lately. But nope! We just wanted to watch Emily Blunt kick ass.

From IMDB: “An idealistic FBI agent is enlisted by a government task force to aid in the escalating war against drugs at the border area between the U.S. and Mexico.”
