Denis Villeneuve returns to morality's shifting line with 'Sicario'

When he was 20, Denis Villeneuve spent a year traveling the world's conflict zones, going from one hot spot to another shooting documentary footage for a Canadian broadcasting company. Villeneuve came from a small Quebec village on the St. Lawrence River and up to that point in his life had barely left Canada, let alone thrown himself headlong into foreign wars. "I remember being struck for the first time by how everybody is the same and yet reality looks so different depending on your perspective," the filmmaker recalled. "I came back from that trip knowing I would never know the truth when crossing a border." SIGN UP for the free Indie Focus movies newsletter...
