My Number 3 Movie of 2015 Is:

An idealist is paired with a stone-cold killer to thwart a nefarious criminal enterprise is the core plot of my number three film of 2015, and no I’m not talking about the latest James Bond movie. Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario takes the #3 spot on my best films of 2015 list for it’s unrelenting storytelling, visual appeal and standout cast, and I sincerely likened Sicario to another Best Picture Oscar winner.

Synopsis: FBI Agent Kate Macer is recruited by a mysterious task force led by a man named Matt Graver to find and neutralize the source of a drug operation based in Mexico. Macer is partnered with an enigmatic mercenary named Alejandro who has his own agenda in working with Graver’s task force and he has no penchant for subtlety or mercy and he won’t allow anyone to stand in his way.
