A new movie review by The Movie Snob.
Wind River (B-). Writer–director Taylor Sheridan wrote two recent movies I liked quite a bit (Hell or High Water and Sicario), so I had fairly high hopes for this one. I didn’t like it as well as those two movies, but it’s not bad if you like crime stories (and have a strong stomach for pretty graphic violence). Jeremy Renner (Arrival) plays Cory Lambert, a federal game & fish commission guy out in rural Wyoming. He hunts wolves and mountain lions when they get out of hand, but then one day he discovers the body of a young Native American woman out in the snow. This really hits Cory hard because his own teenage daughter died under mysterious circumstances some years before. He teams up with Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen, Captain America: Civil War), the lone FBI agent sent out to work on the case. They get into some tight spots. There is an intense flashback that shows the crime they’re investigating. The movie is rated R for “strong violence, a rape, disturbing images, and language.” You’ve been warned!
