I found this to be an incredibly refreshing film compared to many modern crime thrillers. Most notably, the handling of the end reveal seemed truly unique to this genre. The closest comparison I can think of is from Se7en, spoiler Similarly, this film decided to keep us guessing up until spoiler This let the story unfold into more of a tragedy than the standard mystery or thriller you might expect it to be.

Wind River is a crime thriller blanketed with snow, set on a Native reservation in Wyoming, by writer/director Taylor Sheridan (who also penned Hell or High Water). It stars Jeremy Renner as a wild life services hunter and Elizabeth Olsen as an FBI agent out of her depth in the environment, looking for those responsible for a heinous crime against a Native girl. As such, it plays as something of a ghetto story, but as Sheridan likes to remind us, America's poorest don't all live in concrete blocks. While not without humor, Wind River is nonetheless a depressing and at times disturbing piece, told in the shadow of the many undocumented disappearances of Native women both in the U.S. and in Canada. A haunting score well matches the landscape and story, and the script manages both thrills and thoughtful reflection.

Fantastic. Renner gave so much more than I thought he would. Honestly, it's been a while since I've seen anything so perfectly paced. Not much to say other than I look forward to seeing more of Sheridan as writer, director, or both.

Very solid crime thriller with some breath-takingly beautiful Northern American landscapes but quite depressing at times.

Rather paint by numbers story/plot, and a reveal that felt very forced and hurried which felt somewhat odd for an otherwise slow moving thriller.

Granted the scenery was breathtaking but the movie was all about glorifying the Masculine White Man™ in a story that was supposed to be centered on native American women. Elisabeth Olsen's character couldn't do anything without Renner apparently. One dimensional.
