The Top 22 Stoner Movies of 2015

2. Sicario

Set in Juarez, Mexico, Denis Villeneuve's gripping film is like an extension of Traffic, especially with Benicio Del Toro in the cast (he's in both films). The movie focuses on a female FBI agent Kate Maurer (Emily Blunt), who's assigned to a manhunt to capture the head of the Sonora cartel. She's over her head in a male-dominated world that brazenly breaks the rules of engagement. Roger Deakin's landscape cinematography is a major highlight of this drug war saga.
