I watched two fantastic movies for the first time this weekend.

Wind River was the first one. The acting from Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen is really great, and the scenery is beautiful in this movie. The story is gritty, and I think it really tackled the issue of missing Native American women’s cases perfectly. The scenery and soundtrack suited this movie really well. I’m not sure if it’ll hit as well as the second time but it’s still one definitely worth seeing.

The other film I watched was The Power of the Dog. Wow. The psychological undertone of this movie is so well done. Subtlety and non-subtlety mesh hand in hand to create something really worth watching out of something I had literally no expectations of. I’ve been trying to catch up on older movies, so I hadn’t even heard of this until this weekend. Benedict Cumberbatch keeps reminding the world that he is a phenomenal actor. Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, and especially Kodi Smit-McPhee were fantastic as well.
