Synopsis 3 stars out of 4 -- Sheridan drops us in and we know this place immediately; his storytelling is meaty but efficient, and his pacing moves along at a steadily engrossing clip before ultimately exploding in a startling blast of violence.[T]he filmmaker’s gift for procedural and environmental detail still shines brightly through the pulpy crime fiction....WIND RIVER finds the writer and now director trying his hand at snowbound noir.The performances Mr. Sheridan draws from his cast are all excellent....Graham Greene brings his customary quiet power and dry wit to the role of the police chief.[S]omething special....This tense, convincing independent film is the most accomplished violent thriller in quite some time.Sheridan knows his way around structure and writes a naturally spare dialogue.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.WIND RIVER is graced with fine performances from Greene, Gil Birmingham as a grieving father and especially Renner, who slips into Cory’s reluctant heroism as if donning a favorite camo parka.Sheridan makes the landscape itself -- snowswept, dotted with trees and outcroppings of rock, carved up by the treads of snowmobiles -- a character as vivid as the human ones: austere, secretive, and ominous.4 stars out of 5 -- Olsen and Greene are excellent, as usual; there’s a bold, almost mystical score from Nick Cave and Warren Ellis; and Sheridan’s script is alternatively tough and tender.WIND RIVER is similar in tone to SICARIO and HELL OR HIGH WATER but Sheridan’s presence behind the camera offers an elegant demonstration of what a director actually does.[T]he gripping mystery deals with real-life issues affecting Native American reservations and features career-best work from Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen.When wildlife officer Cory Lambert (Jeremy Renner) discovers the body of a young woman on Wyoming's Wind River Native American reservation, FBI agent Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen) is sent to investigate. After Banner hires Lambert as her tracker, the two must brave the isolated winter terrain and local criminal underworld in order to crack the case. Gil Birmingham, Jon Bernthal, and Julia Jones co-star in this thriller. Written and directed by Taylor Sheridan.
