Stark, brilliant, devastating - Wind River is as crisp and cold as the beautifully-shot landscape it takes place in, a massive Native American Reservation in Wyoming (though most of the film was shot in Utah). The reality is just as harsh as the film depicts, with rampant unsolved murders due to the red tape involved in investigating on reservations. The film is well-cast and leaves an emotional toll but is well worth your time.

Wind River - Review

Martin: "How did he go out?"

Cory Lambert: "With a whimper"

I, just like most people, first heard of 'Wind River' from the Sundance Film Festival. It received glowing reviews and even got a 8 minutes standing at Cannes. Sometimes I question if a movie with this much praise behind it can live up to your expectations you set yourself for. I think it did.

This is one chilling and haunting movie. By the end you feel drained and in a deep state of reflection from your experience.

With the stunning cinematography, terrifying score, fully developed characters, and Taylor Sheridan brilliant direction made the overall atmosphere a cold blizzard. That ends so satisfying.

Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, and Graham Greeneis are absolutely outstanding in this. Not a ...
