|12.09.17||Wind River||Taylor Sheridan||While I didn't think Taylor Sheridan's portrayal of Sheriff Whatshisname on Sons of Anarchy was very notable, I did like the stories of Sicario and Hell or High Water, which he wrote. This one he directs proficiently but mostly it's another solid, brutal script set in Wyoming. It's kind of like Hell or High Water meets The Grey. It's also the first movie that I've heard the Bureau of Indian Affairs name-checked. Ahh the good ol' BIA... blast from the previous workplace past.|
I liked this for the most part. There's a concerning flash...back? kind of two thirds through the movie that really muddies the narrative waters. I get why it's there, but maybe it would've been better to show later? or not at all (despite a certain actor who's so hot right now's appearance)... i dunno. I was with it up till then, then I spent the rest of the movie doing plot-math to make sure everything lined up.
Everything else was good though...
