‘Mojave’ is the brain child from the writer of ‘The Departed’. Add in a slew of great actors and the result is me, with high hopes for this movie. But within the first few minutes those hopes were drastically lowered. Poor thriller reuniting Garrett Hedlund and Oscar Isaac a few years after they drove to Chicago together with John Goodman in Inside Llewyn Davis. Both are more or less on equal footing here, though. Hedlund plays a screenwriter who goes out to the Mojave to commit suicide. William Monahan did a great job writing the characters and screenplay. That being said there are lots of long silent scenes that needed dialogue. If Kevin Smith and Quentin Tarantino are the kings of dialogue then William Monahan and Denis Villeneuve are kings of silence. Mojave follows a depressed/possibly suicidal artist who goes to the desert and encounters a homicidal drifter. I had heard nothing but terrible things about this film, and anticipated it to be my first “bad” film of 2016. Mojave (2015) Movie , Mojave (2015) Free Movie , Mojave (2015) wiki.
