Wind River

Rated R 111 minutes 2017

Screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water, Sicario) wrote and directed this bleak mystery set in contemporary Wyoming. A wild-animal tracker (Jeremy Renner) discovers a young woman's bloody corpse on a Native American reservation; because the murder took place on federal land, a Las Vegas FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) arrives to investigate, but she's so overwhelmed by the harsh environment that she soon cedes (unconvincingly) much of the detective work to the tracker. The pace was breakneck in Sheridan's previous thrillers, but in this whodunit the mood is more ruminative and the dialogue is portentous. Thankfully, Graham Greene is on hand as a wise, sarcastic police chief—his barbs and double takes add sorely needed levity to an otherwise downbeat and brutal tale. With Gil Birmingham, Kelsey Asbille, and Jon Bernthal.
