An FBI agent teams up with a tracker after an American Indian girl is
found dead in a Native American reservation. Nothing you haven't seen
before but its chilly winter conditions and alive setting effectively
and collectively perform as a character in the story grabbing the
audience's attention. The mystery seems psychological until the ending
where the film changes gear and falls into some genre traps like
venturing into Tarantino territory and making some shortcuts to save
explaining itself. Having said that, I enjoyed the soul of the film and
some of the characters were interesting even if they didn't have much
time to explain themselves.
Good to Go

An engaging thriller that is unfortunately loaded with cheap genre clichés
Taylor Sheridan's achievement in this film lies in his success in
crafting an old school crime drama that doesn't try to re-invent the
wheel but instead relies on good old-fashioned storytelling. Jeremy
Renner and Elizabeth Olsen are both exceptional as a dissimilar pair
who out of sheer happenstance form an alliance to solve the mystery of
a young woman's brutal death on an Indian reservation. Renner is a U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service tracker. Olsen is an FBI agent sent on an
assignment very much alone.The narrative remains low-key but gradually builds toward its gripping
conclusion. We come to learn quite a lot about Renner's character
through his backstory. He's quite understated and effective in this
role. Olsen enters the picture as an outsider to the bleak region of
despair that the American wilderness is portrayed as here. She must
learn quickly in order to do her job or leave a possible crime
completely unsolved.Because this film deals with life on an Indian reservation, much of the
social and economic woes might seem unfamiliar at first, but the film
does a good job of providing a snapshot of the hardship that pervades
in this part of the country and the difficulty that law enforcement has
in conducting even a workmanlike investigation. Sheridan depicts a
world that is sympathetic and troubled at the same time, masking its
tears with courage and doggedness. Recommended to everyone.

Taylor Sheridan has done it again
Just saw this at the Nantucket Film Festival and I thought it was
excellent. And based on the response of the people around me in the
packed theater, I wasn't the only one. The applause at the end was loud
and long. (The movie ended up coming in second at the festival, right
behind behind The Big Sick) I enjoyed it as much as, if not more than, Hell or High Water. Better
than Sicario.The scenery, the score, the dialogue and the acting were all on point.
Some of Jeremy Renner's best work. He's been spending so much time
playing spy and superhero lately that I think people tend to forget
that he was nominated for Hurt Locker and The Town. His performance
here is even better.
