Wind River 2017 / Available On Streaming Rental or Purchase

9.4

Phenomenal and heartbreaking, Wind River is a true masterpiece by Taylor Sheridan, the man behind Sicario and Hell or High Water. In a Native American Reservation, a local girl is found dead and a young detective (Elizabeth Olsen) tries to uncover the mystery. She is accompanied by a tracker (Jeremy Renner) with his own dark history in the community. It’s not a very rewarding movie at first, so don’t expect an incredibly fast-paced story from the get-go. However, when everything unfolds, it’s not only action-packed, its reflections on indigenous communities are deep and poignant. How this remains a relatively known movie is shocking, it has to be one of the best mysteries of the past 20 years.

Interesting moving, but I wouldn’t say it was a great mystery. A bit slow.

Loved this. Renner simmers with ruggedness and Olsen was a pleasant surprise, owning the role and bringing a great contrast.

Great slow burner, touching and honest about struggles in native communities without falling into the over-dramatic, cheesy or exploitative territory.

I thought this movie was terrible. I thought that the handling of Native issues was clumsy. Poor acting overall.
Sicario was amazing, but for me, this is one of those movies you can’t believe people actually like.

Terrific movie. Lots of everything. Made me cry a bit too. If anything watch it for it’s outstanding soundtrack. Although it does have a very compelling story too.

5/5

I didn’t like it at all. Very slow, predictable, with one-dimensional unconvincing characters. The scenery is nice though.
