Wind River - 4 Stars
Taylor Sheridan strikes again with a beautifully thought out and acted murder drama.
An FBI agent teams with a town's veteran game tracker to investigate a murder that occurred on a Native American reservation.
After Hell or High Water’s critical success writer/director Taylor Sheridan’s follow up proves he has the staying power. Jeremy Renner and Elisabeth Olsen star, both give Oscar winning performances. The writing is excellent and the film evokes an uncomfortable array of emotions. The audio track in the first 20 minutes is difficult to understand, but this significantly improves upon Olsen’s arrival.
Overall it’s visually excellent and bolstering a great supporting cast it’s one not to miss!
