Fifth about The Seventh

Wind River (2017)

Wind River: Taylor Sheridan has his heart in the right place in this moody thriller, tackling a much neglected issue; the result, however, is a cold, sad film. The way the plot unfolds is somewhat unconvincing, as if the story is less relevant than what the film has to say, something that weakens the experience. The tone of the film is an extension of its main character, played quietly and efficiently by Jeremy Renner. The performances all follow that general guideline, as a matter of fact: Elizabeth Olsen and Graham Greene, in the other more meaningful roles, are also fine. Ben Richardson’s camerawork style is constant for the action sequences and the more intimate moments, and the handheld camera feels out-of-place in these last ones.
