Movie Diary 8/7/2017

Wind River (Taylor Sheridan, 2017). The writer of Hell or High Water directs his own script, about a murder investigation on a Wyoming Indian reservation. It misses the humor of Sheridan’s previous film, but then there’s not much funny about this grim tale, ably acted by Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen. (full review 8/9)

Masterminds (Jared Hess, 2016). I didn’t see this last year and wanted to catch up because it’s by the director of Napoleon Dynamite. Maybe he’s better when he’s generating his own material, because this is shy of inspiration and uncertain of tone.
