Movie - Wind River

Postby Bright Raven » Fri Nov 17, 2017 8:01 pm

I don't find many movies these days that appeal to me. The action stuff is mindless. But watched a good one tonight. As many know, I lived in Casper, Wyoming for 7 years. It is one of the great experiences I have been fortunate to have. It is a stark, rugged and dangerous landscape. The mountains in winter are unforgiving.

The movie is Wind River.

Is that in theaters or Netflix, or where can I see it?. I really enjoyed the lead actor in Hurt Locker.

I prefer non fiction to fiction myself. But for a made up story Wind River should be good. It was written and
directed by Taylor Sheridan. He also wrote "Hxll or High Water" a western thriller that had 4 Oscar nominations
including Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay about 2 brothers robbing banks being pursued by 2 Texas Rangers

Wind River released in 2017 Rotten Tomatoes audience score of 4.2 out of 5 with 91% of 25,453 users liking it.

Jeff Bridges ruined be nice or highwater.
His fake accent and talking like he had a mouthful of rocks ruined a semi good plot

Sicario was pretty good. Pretty realistic in some instances.

I watched it when it first came out. Both my sibling had early deaths, my sister while in college. The way the Fathers talk about losing a child reminded me exactly of what my parents still say to this day. My folks have never been the same but who could expect them to be. It brought back bad memories but it is a good movie. If it weren't for the personal aspect I would HIGHLY recomend the movie but told my Mom to stay away from it at all cost.

Cross: I watched HeII or High Water last night. It was entertaining. I thought Bridges was interesting.

BTW: based on that characterization of West Texas, it reminds me of the culture of Eastern Kentucky.
