Lawless (John Hillcoat – 2012) A-

This is a solid well made film about a trio of brothers who were moonshiners during the Prohibition. They find themselves defending their “business” from a sadistic lawman played by Guy Pierce (creepy with no eyebrows). It looks great, the story is interesting and the actors do a fine job. Shia LeBeouf delivers the best performance I’ve seen him do in years, if not ever. Lawless really worked for me.
