Jeremy Renee is a hunter for the Fish & Game commission in a remote area near Lander, WY. His main job is to control wildlife encroachment into populated areas. He's called on by the tribal chief from the local reservation, to which he has family ties, to help solve the death of the daughter of one of his Native American friends. We learn that his own 16 year old daughter was raped and left to die in the wilderness a few years before. That case was never solved. He blames himself because he and his wife were gone for a weekend get-a-way when she disappeared from an unchaperoned party at his house. The FBI sends only one agent to investigate, so he agrees to help her and the chief find out who caused the death of the girl.

    Overall, I enjoyed this film. I liked the story, the interesting wilderness settings, the Native American angle, and the themes. They did a great job of portraying a bleak and hostile land. And Jeremy Renner puts in a solid performance in a kind of role he's accustomed to, but also quite effective in. He pretty much carries this film.

    The moment things first started to slip for me was with the appearance of Elizabeth Olsen. My first thought was "oh no, not that silly Avengers girl." I think I get why Olsen was put into this role - she's supposed to be a "fish out of water." But completely miscasting someone is not quite the same thing as having a good actor portray being out of their element. It's kind of like a short cut to the end and it doesn't work. I didn't find her performance believable (or good). I see this is a Weinstein produced film and will just leave it at that...

    The other main thing that bothered me about the film was the inconsistency with the winter shots. While film production in winter is extremely difficult, I felt that some of the issues were preventable. It doesn't actually go from complete overcast and a blizzard to blue sky, calm and sunny in 10 minutes anywhere that I know of on earth. And when it's actually cold out, you can see people's breath. See "Fargo" as an example of a film that pulls off winter production well.

    Despite these things, this remains one of the better films I've seen this year.

    I will start with Jeremy Renner because he undoubtedly steals the show. He is able to transform himself into an entirely different person, consequently delivering his career-best performance. Renner proves that he is more than just a mere superhero, he is a highly capable actor who brings out an astonishingly emotional display.

    Cory Lambert's script helps a lot Renner's performance since Taylor Sheridan's writing is, as usual, brilliant. Cory has an extremely disturbing and tragic past which the audience only understands near the beginning of the third act, hence elevating the character's backstory into something much more intriguing.

    The screenplay is wonderfully written. Sheridan is effective in avoiding forced exposition scenes with sharp dialogues, every conversation feels genuine. Additionally, some fantastic character development scenes support a truly captivating story that never has a dull moment due to its pretty well-controlled pacing and tone.

    If the writing is not enough for you to appreciate Sheridan's talent, then his work as the director will surely convince you. The action-heavy third act is amazingly filmed, it is packed with some unbelievable shootout and chasing scenes, including some flawless editing that helps the film's overall flow.

    The cinematography (Ben Richardson) feels as real as it could be, the setting is just beautiful and its colors brighten up the movie. Finally, the soundtrack really captures the environment of the snow mountains with some memorable tracks accompanying the narrative.

    This is one of the best films of this year, but I still have some issues with it. My main problem with the screenplay is based on the mystery itself, "who killed the girl"? Even though this is a character-driven movie, its build-up surrounding the murder loses some of its impact when the moment of truth is finally revealed. The characters related to the killing feel a bit cliché and too superficial, so I do feel somewhat disappointed.

    You are probably wondering why I didn't write about Elizabeth Olsen yet. Well, that is because I have a nit-picky thing with her character. Olsen is great, she truly is! She gives a very compelling and passionate performance that will definitely offer her more opportunities for bigger projects in the near future.

    However, I think her character could have been given a more solid backstory to help the audience connect better with her. Jane Banner is far from the "damsel in distress" cliché, in fact, she is able to stand her own against her attackers, but I find her essence very shallow.

    All in all, Wind River is one of my favorite movies of 2017! Jeremy Renner has his best performance yet and Elizabeth Olsen amazingly supports him, despite her character's simple background. Taylor Sheridan elevates everyone and everything with his marvelous writing and skillful direction. Stunning cinematography, an extraordinary score, a great protagonist and an extremely captivating story that never fails to entertain its viewers.

    Its a murder investigation by an FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) with the help of a wildlife officer (Jeremy Renner ) who found the dead body of a raped young girl in American Indian reservation in snowy Wyoming. He is a lion hunter and using his hunting ability to track the killers for FBI agent who became helpless in that climate without much support from agency due to the reason that autopsy revels death caused by rapid inhalation of sub-zero air and not a homicide. The girl was running through the snowy forest in bare foot for escaping from someone.

    Movie is little bit slow in the middle but regains its flow in the end with a different narration approach from the director.

    The film shows the reality of many indigenous families, who lose many relatives. The film shows this with a seriousness and care, to pass on the necessary information.  Like Hateful eight, the film passes in a place covered by snow; the story is simple only that it is getting complex throughout the film: it shows the life of a hunter, Cory (Jeremy Renner), that in one of its police-driven journey to hunt lions, he engages in a case involving a dead girl  The film technically is perfect, photography, soundtrack, editing, direction excellent. The performances are great, the actors get beyond the unfolding of history as the rhythm of the story, that from slow goes to fast, which is not bad. At first, it does not give you much information, but then everything comes together, bringing a good start, a good start, an excellent finish.  It sure is one of the best films of 2017, the director / writer of the movie wrote hell or high water and Sicario, that is, zeal of approval :-)
