Chicago Sun-Times —
“Writer-director Taylor Sheridan’s Wind River is a stark and beautiful and haunting 21st century Western thriller, filled with memorable visuals and poetic dialogue — and scenes of sudden, shocking, brutal violence.”
The writer of SICARIO and HELL OR HIGH WATER serves up a chilling thriller that follows a rookie FBI agent who teams up with a local game tracker to investigate the murder of a local girl on a remote Native American Reservation. U.S. Fish & Wildlife agent Cory Lambert discovers a body in the rugged wilderness of the Wind River Indian Reservation. The FBI sends in rookie agent, but she’s unprepared for the difficulties created by the oppressive weather and isolation of the Wyoming winter. When she employs Cory as a tracker, the two venture deep into a world ravaged by violence and the elements. It’s a stark look at life on the edge of an imposing wilderness, where the rule of law is eclipsed by the laws of nature. Starring Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen and Graham Greene. Rated R (2 hrs)
Los Angeles Times
The focus here is always on character and storytelling and the acting that brings it all alive. With thrillers this good becoming a lost art, Wind River is definitely one to savor
The New York Times
An actor before he was a screenwriter, Mr. Sheridan clearly spent a lot of his time learning about filmmaking on movie sets; his direction is assured throughout.
It does show us, in threads deftly woven, how circumstances can push hard against people, making everyday living a battle.
