Old sheriff kilbaught is a violent dinosaur going the way of his kind.
-How about yourself?
I'm good on coffee. Uh-huh. Spent a good five months figuring out smuggling routes up in Indian Ridge.
Kept on hearing about peculiarities and such. Catapults and back-alley breast implants. Even heard
about a submarine once somebody took the time to build by hand in their garage. Mm. And these brass bastards, they buy fear and panic, which makes them a whole lot cleaner than money. You can speculate all you want about where they came from or where they're going, but the real concern here is, what's gonna happen if this bullet don't make its destination.

He's been reported missing this morning.
-Boys need stupid things to do. That's how their mamas wire them.
Well, his mama wasn't no electrician.
-Explains the dim bulb.
It's not like you to be so funny so early.

***Spoiler Alert***
Hold on there a second. Don't you go dwelling in dignity. Does not suit you. Doesn't suit us. She's half your worth, and she's gone. You haven't sold a car on that lot for ages. You got a face like a thumb, and you stuck it on a TV commercial.
-How dare you, hmm?
I do must ask myself, how the hell do you keep this place afloat?
===
Wasn't too good at taking you away from this place, was I?
-No. Mm. You are tired, busted, and hurt, is what you are.
===
That don't sound like him.
-People have a way of changing on you, I guess.
===
You know, sometimes... I can't get through an entire day without hearing all kinds of rumors getting told about you.
-Like what?
I don't know. One of my favorite ones is the one about you getting murdered on Indian Ridge.
-Well, they have the decency to bury me, at least?
Can't say. Don't really keep track of the rumors I didn't start.

You're making an arrest? That's why you're here. Helping restore me to the man I once was.
===
Well, there's no getting him, the man you're after. Could be anybody. Because incidentally, he is anybody.
Monsters hide in plain sight. And once you put enough money in a man's hands, he'll do almost whatever you want, and you can turn him into whatever you need him to be. Just like these boogeymen on the back roads. They're demons. And "demons" is only a way of calling their illness.
===
Now we're gonna make a liar out of you.
===
You know you don't got to go.
-Call it a good cause, then.
The only good cause you'll ever have is listening to me. We could go. Keep driving.
===
They don't care about the money neither. They just got to decide if his death is enough. Simple as that. If they can find Ken in the middle of a back road, they're sure as hell are gonna find you.

I've been watching you the last few weeks, driving back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. Now, we both know there ain't nothing in this town worth taking a second look at.
===
I always told you that you deserve better, Marla. But I never said i didn't love you.
===
They will erase you. And they'll erase all memory of you, starting with her. With god by our side, who can be against us? Come the morning hour, you'll reckon it's better she dies by your hand than their cruel hooks.
===
If you know the girl don't belong, why not let her go?
-Because it's not the true shape of fidelity.
===
Times like these, you can't blame a guy for trying to turn a dollar.
===
If you're talking about that offer I made, that still stands.
-Is that right? All you got to do is let me walk out that door. Let me disappear.
No such thing as disappearing, shep. There's only dying. As far as good people go... I don't recall meeting one that wasn't already dead.

Quite a bit of similarity to "Transpecos 2016" on police corruption, violent sicarios and desperate people in an isolated poor border hamlet, but with ammo instead of drug trafficking, more graphic gore, big name actors and high production values. Good entertainment for those who can't get enough of and do not mind a 2nd rated versions of films like No Country for Old Men and Sicarios. Ian McShane played a disgraced crusty sheriff and Patrick Wilson, his idealistic replacement ... at least initially.
