Wind River 2017 / Sicario's screenwriter directs this story of murder in an Indigenous reserve

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. 2 people liked this review.

    Great slow burner, touching and honest about struggles in native communities without falling into the over-dramatic, cheesy or exploitative territory. 0 people liked this review.

    I didn't like it at all. Very slow, predictable, with one-dimensional unconvincing characters. The scenery is nice though. -2 people liked this review.

    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. -1 people liked this review.

    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 -1 people liked this review.
