WIND RIVER REVIEWED

“Wind River” is a far better movie than what I expected. However, it suffers from that revisionist streak hitting modern macho movies. Whether it be “Sicario” or “Hell or High Water”, there’s an effort to re-frame man movies by the victims involved. This film asks us to take an almost Frozen River approach to the plight of Native American women. That lasts when it is needed, but the film is really about an isolated hunter reconnecting to the world. But, don’t worry…he gets to be bad ass in terms of social justice gains.

The guy who wrote and directed this movie also helmed the underwhelming “Hell or High Water”. There are a ton of parallels between both movies, but the earlier film had Jeff Bridges to provide a bit of gravitas. At times, the film fights to urge to be preachy and then be action-packed. The action is quite good, but Elizabeth Olsen keeps getting relegated to the tag-along role. There’s a great movie to be found in “Wind River”. It just needed a tighter edit and slimmed down cast to truly shine.

    NOW, WE HAVE CONTESTS!
     
    After Thanksgiving ended, I was playing catch-up after busting my face open. Now, I’ve got a cool Kylo Ren scar on my nose in time for The Last Jedi. Naturally, some stuff fell through the cracks. As such, I wanted to pair a bunch of remaining 2017 material into one giant chance for readers to win.
    This Best of Year article will get updated throughout the month. Some lists are done, some lists will trickle out until the last week of the year. While reading, we want you to scan your eyeballs all the way to the end of the list. As such, we’re offering contests at the bottom of page!
    HOW TO ENTER
    Answer the following questions/perform the following functions:
    1) Which Vice Principals character does the AV crew thinks looks like Rob Hughes (http://www.braindeadradio.com)?
    2) If James Franco really was twins, how many more terrible Faulkner adaptations could he make in a given year?
    3) The Deuce is about the sleazy parts of NYC during the peak grime era. While watching the show, I’d read up on the time over at the Rialto Report. Follow The Rialto Report on Twitter. They’re good people.
    4) Who was your worst Vice Principal? I want to hear stories.
    WHAT’S TO WIN IN THIS FINE CONTEST?
    Digital HD codes for “The Deuce” and “Vice Principals”!
    WHEN DOES IT END?
    Winners will be selected at AV’s discretion or whenever HBO yells at us to turn this off.
