“Confirms the director as a rising talent who can be trusted to beat his own enticing path through inhospitable ground.”~The Telegraph
Aroview: A rookie FBI agent and a local wildlife tracker team up to investigate the death of a young Native American woman on a snowy Indian reservation in Wyoming.
Directed by the talented scriptwriter for SICARIO and HELL OR HIGH WATER, this is one of the strongest neo-Westerns in recent years, with an unrelentingly chilly atmosphere, detailed character development and a remote cultural setting that is explored with rich ethnographic detail. Based on true events involving the sexual assault of thousands of Native American women, the only demographic in America for whom missing persons statistics are not kept.
2 stars (Good Try) The shooting locations were great but the big shootout scene turned into a comedy and didn't help the serious message of the film. The compulsory casting of Graham Greene added character and talent.~tubbs
4 stars (Very Good) The script is bow-taut and arrow-sharp, the acting understated but forthright. As a hybrid western/thriller, it's compelling, satisfying genre entertainment; as an expose of systemic injustice, it's clear-eyed and stirring.~fairbrother
