We saw Sicario in Evanston last night. It was just *meh.* I heard a discussion on NPR that led me to believe it had some psychological depth, but it was really just an action film, and, IMO, a mediocre film for that genre.
Before the movie, we tried a restaurant in North Evanston. On the way there, we could not help but notice swarms of NU students on the sidewalks and loud parties spilling from houses onto front lawns. Ubiquitous Solo cups suggested alcohol was involved, and that observation was further supported by the sight of first responders attending to a girl on a sidewalk near one the parties. She was on her feet, but looked wobbly as paramedics removed a gurney from the ambulance.
When we were closer to the restaurant, we realized that NU had a night game, which explained the the commotion on the north side of the city.
