Those Who Wish Me Dead (2021, dir. Taylor Sheridan)

A compromised smoke jumper finds herself protecting a boy against a pair of hired assassins. Competent if plasticky thriller with action elements. Strong casting and some badassery helps, but the thin story and a reliance on iffy CG and greenscreen for production value are hindrances.

Here’s the trailer.

Wind River (2017, dir. Taylor Sheridan)

A hunter helps an FBI agent investigate the murder of a young woman. Enthralling snowy contemporary Western, with something to say about grief, the bleakness of reservation life, and life in the mountains, while delivering genre thrills.

Sicario (2015, dir. Denis Villeneuve)

A female FBI agent gets in over her head when she volunteers to liaise with an inter-agency anti-drugs team. Smart, bleak and suspenseful thriller with great performances and some standout sequences. Recommended.
