Taylor Sheridan is quite the enthralling storyteller. His attraction and empathy with life on the peripheries of society continue with his latest film, Wind River. After only playing scribe to the chilling Sicario and the gritty Hell or High Water, Sheridan is in the director’s chair for the second time in his career overseeing thriller with western tendencies set on a bleak Wyoming Indian reservation.
Wind River (2017) Review
Wind River is directed and written by Taylor Sheridan and is the conclusion to his "American Frontier" trilogy (Sicario, Hell or High Water). The film stars Jeremy Renner (The Avengers, Arrival) and Elizabeth Olsen (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Godzilla). "An FBI agent teams with a town's veteran game tracker to investigate a murder that occurred on a Native American reservation". Sicario and Hell or High Water were both critical gems, with the former reaching the top of my year-end 2015 list. Can Wind River follow suit?
De Palma: The master of excess and suspense
There is no doubt that one of the great directors of the modern age is Brian de Palma, a director who has a long list of classics, near classics and interesting gems to his name. Scarface, The Untouchables, Carlito's Way, Obsession, Dressed to Kill, Casualties of War, Mission Impossible, Raising Cain or Carrie. Even his duds – Bonfire of the Vanities, Mission to Mars or Snake Eyes – have moments of great interest to cinephiles and reveal a director with a real understanding, not only of the technical aspects of filmmaking, but of the filmic possibilities of the camera.
