Sheridan wants us to know these people, this terrain, to feel the bite of the cold and the lonely sting of their lives.

You learn to look for tracks and clues; it's a film that makes you a better viewer.

An actor before he was a screenwriter, Mr. Sheridan clearly spent a lot of his time learning about filmmaking on movie sets; his direction is assured throughout.

The set-up in which an outside investigator is sent to an inhospitable location to solve a murder isn't new, but Sheridan brings a welcome freshness to the concept.

At first I thought the resolution to the movie was bereft of logic, but that just may be the point.

While Wind River doesn't reach the high water mark of those two superb tales it's still a terrifically atmospheric drama.

Combustible, masculine and tense, it demonstrates both that Sheridan can direct with ease and that his written work is eminently filmable.

Slow moving initially but builds brilliantly. Very impressed with Mr Sheridan (Secario, Hell or High Water). Lookin forward to more from the man.

A dangerous and unforgiving landscape breeds dangerous men. Women beware. This is the unspoken assumption behind most Westerns, and also behind this film. In winter, on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming, a dead barefoot girl has been found miles from the nearest building. The local police, an FBI agent and a hunter investigate. While the...

In 2017 it’s unfortunate that the ostensible chief concern of 'Wind River' (namely the ongoing, and often ignored, abuse of Native American women) has been realized in the form of an overtly masculine story of a white man in crisis. It’s doubly unfortunate that, having decided that this is the story he wants to tell, writer/director Taylor Sheridan...

Wind River deals with a common crime-mystery trope but still manages to be fresh, steady and scary-as-hell. Some debut for a director to make but isn't unexpected considering Taylor Sheridan's body of work. Things that stand out are the pacing, the music (Nick Cave and co.) and the bleakness of the setting which screams misery and isolation as did the...
