The Counselor

The Counselor ★★½

The Counselor is by far the most pretentious film of 2013. Instead of working within the context of what could be a fairly entertaining plot, Scott repeatedly takes the audience into scenes of pointless and intentionally ambiguous dialogue, of which he pretends to input a deep and almighty meaning into. The film truly does have an intricate plot, intriguing characters and interesting concepts. However, the condescending tone only tastes of betrayal as the film intentionally seeks to supersede it's own knowledge of nothingness over the audience.
