Like the land in which it takes place, Wind River is a harsh and relentless film. It's an intense slow burn that leads to a climax that gives up its revelation in a quick and explosive burst.

As a writer, Taylor Sheridan has already proven himself. As a director, I consider this somewhat of a practice round.

A taut, cold mystery, and a strong directorial offering, especially for a filmmaker with only one other feature under his belt.

The film features a tense, atmospheric mystery, sustained by the protagonist, who acts like the cowboy in a modern western. [Full review in Spanish]

It's an exercise in great storytelling, character development, superior acting, and establishing a sense of location that brings us unsettlingly close to facing our own prejudices.

The acting is strong, the characters complex and the story realistic.

More predictable than it is a disappointment, Wind River may not be incredibly nuanced, but is more often than not enjoyable.

Wind River is as much of a gritty crime thriller as it is a character study. While the former sometimes suffers in service of the latter, the film is, in the end, greater than the sum of its parts.
August 5, 2019
There is a reason Wind River is gaining momentum. While it can be hard to watch at times, it is a compelling story that envelopes the audience from the opening scenes.

This feels like a train at full speed. A thriller set in a cold and unforgiving place with no rules. [Full review in Spanish].

Inspired by true events, Wind River isn't a film about one story, it's about something bigger: The injustice faced by murdered and missing Indigenous women.
June 4, 2019
While it never quite matches its own ambitions, Sheridan still manages to deliver a crackerjack mystery that relies on characters rather than twists, turns, or shocks.
April 24, 2019
A great portrait of human grief.
March 18, 2019
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.
March 7, 2019
I had a few issues with the way the female characters were portrayed but it was still an engaging mystery.
February 22, 2019
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.
February 11, 2019
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.
January 30, 2019
A tense and slow-burn murder mystery with one giant sucker-punch of an ending.
December 19, 2018
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.
