American Made (2017, Doug Liman)

Got no screenshots or notes, but I watched this twice in two weeks, and might just watch it again right now. A commercial pilot becomes a CIA operative becomes a drug smuggler, ends up working for everybody and making far more cash than his family can spend, drawing increasing suspicion from all sides, and it ends badly for the guy. Tom Cruise projects his usual boundless confidence, this time with a hint of dumb panic underneath, and Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) throws out every technique he can think of to keep the movie from being your standard true-crime drama – and it all works. With Sarah Wright (Jerry’s daughter in Parks & Rec) as Cruise’s wife, and Caleb Landry Jones as her fuckup brother.
