Critics reviews

THE WIND is a film that’s easy to love but difficult to like. Its melodrama is predictable and frequently uninvolving. The (plentiful) hick comic relief represents an incongruous lapse of judgment. THE WIND is a monument in spite of itself—not a work of pure form, but an intemperate physical artifact, an unyielding ruin. It demands a deranged commitment equal to Lillian Gish’s own. Her performance is a masterwork of subtlety, literally on the verge of being blown off screen at any moment.
