Review: Hell or High Water (Spoiler-Free)

Hell or High Water starring Chris Pine, Jeff Bridges and Ben Foster has come out of nowhere and has easily become one of my favourite films of the year. Chris Pine gives a performance far from his usual pseudo-action roles and plays the smart, withdrawn Toby phenomenally. It’s the subtlety …
