Wind River ticks all the right boxes. It also leaves a bad smell.
September 7, 2017
A curious but ultimately humane story of brutality and grief on a vast Native American reserve in Wyoming.

It's an American thriller that will certainly appeal to fans of Scandinavian noir.

Wind River is a smart and very satisfying movie.
September 7, 2017
In its marriage of man and landscape, Sheridan's film is like an Anthony Mann Western remade. It's a Naked Spur gone snowy; a Far Country gone far, feral and scenically tremendous.

A terrible shame to use such an interesting setting for such a conventional story.
August 23, 2017
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.
August 17, 2017
The pace was breakneck in Sheridan's previous thrillers, but in this whodunit the mood is more ruminative and the dialogue is portentous.
August 11, 2017
Sheridan has professed admiration for Clint Eastwood's towering anti-Western "Unforgiven" and dark-night-of-the-soul dramas from Michael Mann. Both are reference points for his adept mix of masculine posturing and wounded soul-searching.
August 11, 2017
The cause is just and the ambition is admirable, but the result is middling in both the writing and directing departments.
August 11, 2017
For all the character studies and moments of reflection and lament, Wind River never loses its identity as a gritty thriller.
August 11, 2017
The film reveals its twists slowly but surely, with Sheridan confident that his lead heroes will keep you captivated as he breaks his story down.
August 10, 2017
Lambert's three-dimensionality elevates Wind River above the norms of the traditional crime movie so that, in addition to delivering the expected tropes, it provides a richer, more fulfilling experience.
August 10, 2017
An auspicious directorial debut for writer/director Taylor Sheridan ...

"Wind River" is worth seeing if only to see Renner in the kind of starring role he so richly deserves and, with luck, will continue to find.
August 10, 2017
The still-ruinous treatment of Native Americans hangs over the movie like one of those immense storm clouds. "Wind River" is as much about mourning as murder.
August 10, 2017
As with all of the films he writes, Sheridan takes us to places that are foreign to many of us, yet immerses us so deeply into the sense of place that everything feels familiar, recognizable.
