I saw this few days back on a Blu-ray. As an avid fan of Taylor Sheridan, was looking forward to this without watching the trailer. It is a very beautifully shot, well acted and distressing crime drama. The vast landscape becomes more than a vivid backdrop, it becomes a character in the film.Wind River is able to showcase Sheridans directing and storytelling strengths.From the dark border area (Sicario), to the scorching plains of Texas (Hell or ...) and to the frozen mountains in Wyoming in Wind river, the writer/director managed to make the landscape a character in the film. Jeremy Renner potrayed the role of a broken man who is keen on hunting the predators very well n he deserves an Oscar for his performance. The less said about the plot is better because one has to see this film rather than read about its plot.The film has a very strong social message.The films conclusion with the message was very horrifying n distressing.

Renner's potrayal of a broken man who is keen on hunting any kinda predators, Sheridan's superb writing, the snowy landscape as another character makes this a must watch.Reviewed byFella_shibbyVote: 9/10
Taylor Sheridan's achievement in this film lies in his success incrafting an old school crime drama that doesn't try to re-invent thewheel but instead relies on good old-fashioned storytelling. JeremyRenner and Elizabeth Olsen are both exceptional as a dissimilar pairwho out of sheer happenstance form an alliance to solve the mystery ofa young woman's brutal death on an Indian reservation. Renner is a U.S.Fish and Wildlife Service tracker. Olsen is an FBI agent sent on anassignment very much alone.
The narrative remains low-key but gradually builds toward its grippingconclusion. We come to learn quite a lot about Renner's characterthrough his backstory. He's quite understated and effective in thisrole. Olsen enters the picture as an outsider to the bleak region ofdespair that the American wilderness is portrayed as here. She mustlearn quickly in order to do her job or leave a possible crimecompletely unsolved.
Because this film deals with life on an Indian reservation, much of thesocial and economic woes might seem unfamiliar at first, but the filmdoes a good job of providing a snapshot of the hardship that pervadesin this part of the country and the difficulty that law enforcement hasin conducting even a workmanlike investigation. Sheridan depicts aworld that is sympathetic and troubled at the same time, masking itstears with courage and doggedness. Recommended to everyone.
If you've seen any of Taylor Sheridan's previous work, you probably noted that he has a certain style. He tells stories about ways of life in dilapidated regions of the country. He blurs the lines between "good guys" and "bad guys," instead framing the status of the selected region as the truest villain. What's right and wrong, considering all the unique variables of each story, is not always clear. At least, that was case in Sicario and Hell or High Water.
In Wind River, the region is still presented with all the strain that is causes on the lives of its residents, but a much more obvious villain is revealed before the movie is over.
Hell of High Water frames the crumbling economy of a certain Texas region as the real source of evil, rather than any characters. Whereas in Wind River the source of evil is definitely the rapist. I mean, the rapist attempts to blame the cold and silence, but his actions were clearly much worse than bad weather.
Sheridan's previous films also left doubt about who were the heroes, who the audience should be rooting for. This time it was much less ambiguous—they were the people searching for the rapist.
An emerging theme in Sheridan's movies appears to be Tarantinoesque eruptions of violence, sometimes near the conclusion. They don't always reach the levels of the Django Unchained shootout, but Sheridan clearly isn't shy about showcasing the unforgiving damage that can be inflicted by firearms.
Complaints, I have a few. On more than one occasion, I legitimately could not understand what a character had said, so I was left wondering if I missed something important. I'm not sure if this manner of speaking was a choice made by the actors or if this was a decision made by Sheridan to establish a certain tone. Either way, I could have used less mumbling.
The other complaint that I have, and this is more serious, the middle third of the movie felt like it contained a lot of empty moments. This may or may not have been related to the times that I couldn't understand what a character said. Still, the movie could have used a bit of its fat trimmed. It wasn't as crisp and clean as Hell or High Water and Sicario. And I know I keep comparing this movie to Sheridan's others, but that's bound to happen when a writer sets the bar so high with two gems.
On the whole, I consider this a success for Sheridan in his directorial debut. I'd happily watch another story of his about justice and an overlooked culture.
