Wind River is a smart and very satisfying movie.
At a deep and icy level, Wind River is about power. . . There's something else going on here, and white masculinity is at its heart. The movie that can wring catharsis out of that will be a long time coming.
Bundle up: "Wind River" will blow you away.
[Wind River] is still a film worth seeing-as, one hopes, will be whatever films lie in Sheridan's promising future.
[Taylor] Sheridan paints a searing picture of life on society's margins - people who live with 'silence and snow' and not much else.
The pace was breakneck in Sheridan's previous thrillers, but in this whodunit the mood is more ruminative and the dialogue is portentous.
I love that Taylor Sheridan is just as concerned with his characters as he is with solving a murder case, putting this film far and above a typical CSI or Law & Order's 'whodunnit' episode.
I had a few issues with the way the female characters were portrayed but it was still an engaging mystery.
Jeremy Renner proves as safe a pair of hands as ever, grounding the emotion and making this into much more than the formulaic revenge pic it could've become.
Wind River is undeniably a success. It's an emotionally powerful film that features some good performances. However, it does seem to have suffered a little from [Taylor] Sheridan's taking of the auteur reins.
A tense and slow-burn murder mystery with one giant sucker-punch of an ending.
When the tone flips on its head later in the film, Wind River becomes something else entirely: a vivid, gripping peek into life on the fringes.
I nearly bought this as I like most of Elizabeth Olsen's movies. So glad I did a 99c rental instead. Really wasn't into this at all.
Taylor Sheridan is an excellent screenwriter but here directs a barely average effort that, despite Renner's solid performance, fails to be cohesive enough and offer compelling motivations for Olsen's character, who is mostly wasted and doesn't have that much to do in all this.
Taylor Sheridan's third film of his Trilogy about the modern American trilogy is the gloomiest. The hunt for a murderer and rapist in the snowy Wyoming mountains is as chilly as it sounds, driven by great acting and culminates in a burst of violence. 50 years ago this film, similar to the two unrelated predecessors, would have worked perfectly as a western movie. It basically still is one. Outstanding work by everyone involved.
The body of a young Native American woman is found out in the snowy reaches of Wyoming and the following investigation is the gist of this film. Along the way are a couple of obviously "meaningful" monologues that nearly derail the work, before we get to the action of the final third wherein the piece finds its footing. Much is left out here in terms of character development by writer/director Taylor Sheridan but all is forgiven in that selfsame third. Renner too is clumsy for much of the piece, but by the end finds his way. Another "give it a chance to work" work.
