While several West Texas Mountain Ranges could pass for the mountains shown in the background of many scenes, all of the ones shown in Hell or High Water are actually New Mexico mountain ranges. See more »
When Tanner and Toby rob the bank in Post, a girl sends a message to her dad on her phone. The time on the phone is 6:07 PM. Seconds later we see the wall clock in the bank, and it is at 8:40. Clearly AM, as it is morning. See more »

Refreshingly original, brilliantly acted, thoughtful western/crime film
In a summer (or should that be year or decade) of vapid sequels, remakes, and overblown superhero catastrophes, who would have expected an entertaining, intelligent, well-crafted, suspenseful, character- driven, modern-day western with a brain. Riding on Taylor Sheridan's razor-sharp script and David Mackenzie's nuanced direction, Jeff Bridges, Chris Pine, and (especially) Ben Foster (along with everyone else who appears on the screen) inhabit this film as wryly humorous, heartfelt, vicious, painfully tragic, and realistic members of a society reaping the fruits it has tragically sown. Best film so far this year.
