Michael Fassbender & Javier Bardem on The Counsellor's challenging Cormac McCarthy script

The Counsellor's leads chat complex cinema

The Counsellor is not what you'd call a simple movie.

Challenging, complex and with long, philosophical and entrancing monologues fully deserving of a Cormac McCarthy script, while our review is glowing, it's hard to deny that it's not the most accessible of narratives.

We chatted to lead actor Michael Fassbender and co-star Javier Bardem about what appeals to them about a McCarthy script, and if they're concerned that mainstream audiences won't fully 'get' it.

The Counsellor is released in UK cinemas 15 November 2013.

And for more Fassbender-y goodness, just watch our video below as he confirms that Prometheus 2 is definitely a-coming...
