  2. Dani, if we could get some analysis on Sicario, no matter short or long, it would be great. Especially because you gave the movie your number 1 spot this year and how everyone else is also talking about it. Are there any visual metaphors or symbolism involved which maybe you can address. Once again, many thanks for your amazing reviews.
