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 weak performance in sight, from everyone else. I'm surprised there's no award talk about Renner and Greeneis during this Oscar season. Renner playing the tough, but broken bad-ass with a painful history was compelling to watch.

Not as great like 'Sicario' and 'Hell or High Water', but still a strong directed movie from Taylor Sheridan.

Overall rating: The alternate version of 'The Snowman', just more Western.
