“Sicario,” the new border thriller starring Emily Blunt and Benicio Del Toro is often hard to watch.
It’s especially hard to watch for me because a good part of it takes place in my old hometown of El Paso, Texas. It’s crazy to me that Juarez, Mexico has become synonymous with a house of horrors — a place only crazy people would go. You get the feeling that roving bands of drug dealers are waiting just over the border to kidnap and decapitate you.
