Wind River (2017)

It's a cold world! And even colder by the Wind River, on the Indian reservation, where hunter Cory Lambert one day stumbles upon a dead girl in the snow. The FBI gets called, they send in a lone agent, and the two of them go on a hunt.

It's a wild and barren pace. The sense of isolation comes across. The motion, too. The injustice. The suffering. The violence. Nothing prepared me for the final shoot-out, but damn, that might've been the fiercest showdown I've seen in a long time.

I wasn't really prepared for the movie, period. There's not much action, but the little there is packs a punch, but more so: it packs emotion.

One punch, man. Right in the feels. Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, the Indians and all: great performances. Great watch.

(Not) Fun Fact: While missing person statistics exist for every other demographic, none are compiled for native American women. No one knows how many are missing.

But I don't want to end this as just a statistic. It's so much more.

    This was a good one, very sharp and well done. The shootout was short but intense. I yearned for more action, but tbh the film didn't really call for it. I thought the acting was all around well-done, except for Olsen- too stiff and monotone throughout.

    Olsen hmm... I think I felt like her stiffness reflected her discomfort with where she was. Didn't figure it for bad acting as much as good acting, but maybe my impression's off there too. Indeed, 'sharp' seems like the right word for it. Yearned too, but agree, just can't be disappointed.
