Even leaving aside the mechanical aspects of Sheridan’s plotting, there’s a sense that all this ruthlessly evoked trauma—and the larger problems it signifies—is just a pretense. For what, you ask? Well, Sheridan does like his florid tough-guy poetry and deploys it in nearly every scene. “This is the land of you’re-on-your-own,” rasps one local, who, like the guy writing his lines, has apparently seen Blood Simple.

There is, I think, a certain obviousness that mars the film: an obvious mystery, an obvious rape-revenge resolution, and an obvious cinematic style, limited to a few mood-setting chords and anonymous handheld photography. Sheridan has room to grow as a filmmaker, but he knows how to keep a plot clipping along, when to drop the thematic hammer, and how details can turn a corpse into more than a mere procedural.

The movie peaks with its pre-credit sequence, in which it still seems as though Sheridan is taking into consideration the poetic potential and dramatic weight of the landscape, its specific history and inhabitants. Yet as the film progresses, Sheridan strips away everything that initially makes it so distinctive, adding artificially dramatic moments and tension that feel tired and irrelevant to life on the Reservation.

    Was it The best way to waste him? I'd have left him near the mountain lions' lair, but maybe I'm mean and loathe far too much serial rapists./Getting sick of the recurring misogynistic trope that demands that "strong" women characters must too often be abuse survivors. Must overcome "adversity" means they need to be abused. Can't you be a normal empowered woman in lieu of a victim?Sorry, no ovation for you.*FACEPALM*

  • msmichel's rating of the film Wind River

    After writing the well received 'Sicario' and 'Hell or High Water' Sheridan moves back into the director's chair with this well constructed genre exercise with a strong political undercurrent and real world sensibility. Fairly well cast with only Olsen a little out of her element (but mind you so is her character).

  • J. O.'s rating of the film Wind River

    It is clear by now Sheridan is very skilled at crafting taut Westerns that exist in proverbial no man's lands - borderlands with little law, modern-day frontiers. This is no different - though it mainly suffers from lazy exposition, some predictability, and an unrealistic, Hollywood shoot-em-up ending.

  • Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Wind River

    Sheridan's trilogy of modern westerns depict an unreconstructed America as yet untroubled by tech startups and soy lattes: this is still a land of frontiers, outlaws and culture clashes. Renner once again proves he's a much better dramatic actor than he is a multiplex star.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Wind River

    Taylor Sheridan concludes an impressive trilogy of terse, masculine thrillers with "Wind River," a film that punctuates its bruised melancholy with moments of wince-inducing violence. Sheridan's stories are as much about their settings as they are their characters, and he seems admirably committed to investigating regions of the country that the coasts have written off. "Wind River" may be his finest effort yet.

  • Graveyard Poet's rating of the film Wind River

    Here's this film's glaring problem: it's a misogynistic white male revenge fantasy disrespectful to Native Americans. A drug addicted teenager is lectured by the white hero on his bad life choices. A grieving father is lectured by the white male hero on how to survive. A young Native American woman's rape is brutal, disgusting, exploitative. I'm bitterly disappointed. Native Americans should be rightfully pissed off.

  • Bilouaustria's rating of the film Wind River

    Folklore. I do not believe Sheridan was genuinely interested in this indian reserve, other than for the thrill and the nice nature. It looks pretty ordinary all the way, plus i have to confess i don´t like Renner. So you just go again for the same crime story we have seen 1000 times with cheap-disgusting violence and the ass of the main actress in the first minutes BUT guys good news we have indians. Come on.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Wind River

    Sheridan wrote (but didn't direct) Hell or High Water, which had a fine script but looked too glossy by half. Glossiness isn't a problem here—the soil feels dirtier. Wind River aspires to be something of a "borderland noir" where the border is between Americans, and while this prosaically linear murder mystery has no real distinct style, there are moments at the end where it make its most obvious points feel alive.
