'The Counselor' Review

Before fall movie season began, I'm sure a lot of folks circled The Counselor as one of the season's big films. Directed by Ridley Scott, written by Cormac McCarthy, a cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz and Javier Bardem: That seems like a pretty major movie, right? But despite plentiful TV commercials, there just didn't end up being that much buzz around it. Well, I saw The Counselor this week, and I quite liked it, although it's admittedly very, very loopy. My review is up at Screen International.
