Jeremy Renner plays Cory Lambert, a hunter for the Fish & Wildlife department helping Elizabeth Olsen, a young FBI agent investigate the homicide of a young girl on an Indian reservation. As the movie churns on you get background on Renner's character, from his divorce to his skills as a tracker to the loss of his daughter who was best friends to the girl killed on the reservation. Any more to the story line would be a spoiler alert.
What is most noticeable about this movie is the skillful way that the cold and ice of the scenery start to creep into your skin as you watch it. You can't help but be overwhelmed by the beautiful but chilling backdrop to the whole story line. Every character you come into contact with seems to be infected with the shear icy desolation of the place. Those that live there are either depressed by, jaded by it or killed by it.
This movie movies at medium pace, carrying you along to each turn ready to share a unique twist that never lets you down. Renner's character promises you the truth and all the way to the end it never lets you down. What you want when you start watching this movie is justice for the girl and then somewhere in the middle you want justice for Renner's character... but what you get in the end is indescribable. Rated R for some gore, blood and body parts (morgue), there is also bad language in parts as well as a rape scene.
Taylor Sheridan gets high marks for creating a chilling murder mystery. You will not regret the rental and for Renner fans it is worth the purchase.
I’ve watched this movie four times now, and every time my emotions have been torn by the raw humanity that reveals the base evil capable of man and the pure love that can unite us in times of such brutality.
Powerful film - don’t miss it.
“Nothing is harder to track than the truth.” - “Wind River” movie poster tagline
Four and a half DETERMINED Stars. Inspired by actual events, “Wind River” is an artful, wintry, action and mystery film by writer Taylor Sheridan, in his award-winning second directorial stint, set mostly on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming and it is the third film in his trilogy of screenplays following the acclaimed duo of “Sicario” and Oscar-nominated screenplay for “Hell or High Water”. After a mysterious opening scene, the action gets started when Fish and Wildlife hunter Cory Lambert makes a tragic discovery that draws in FBI agent Jane Banner who needs expert, local assistance to crack this case. But much more is brewing under the surface of this brooding, fascinating film that debuted at Sundance, won a Cannes Best Director award for Sheridan, and reportedly received a long standing ovation at Cannes Film Festival. Tragedy, heartbreak, a relentless search, targeted violence, mystery, and a need for justice dominate this film that is elevated all the more by the grim statistic highlighted at the very end. There is excellent acting, directing, music, and cinematography in this film, starring the superb cast of Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Gil Birmingham, Kelsey Asbille (Chow), Apesanahkwat, Teo Briones, Tantoo Cardinal, Matthew Del Negro, Hugh Dillon, Julia Jones, Tokala Black Elk, Martin Sensmeier, Tyler Laracca, with Graham Greene and Jon Berthal. Music by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. Some vital elements of the movie were emphasized during a second viewing, especially the opening scene. One powerful scene between Birmingham and Renner is particularly affecting though they are mostly off camera. Highly Recommended. Four and an half RELENTLESS Stars. (Acacia Entertainment.
