Wind River is easily the best movie I’ve seen over the past few years, though admittedly I gravitate more toward slow-burn crime-dramas and it’s a great follow-up to Hell or High Water and is an excellent directorial debut for Taylor Sheridan.
Thanks to fantastic performances from the entire crew, Elizabeth Olsen in particular is incredible, and a limited theatrical run, Liberal Arts is one of the best hidden gems of 2012 and is worth at least a rental. The Blu-ray has good video/audio transfers but the features are on the disappointing side with a short EPK featurette, though the commentary is good.
Silent House is yet another film that spoiled its potential. Despite some suspense-filled scenes and an interesting idea of portraying it as one shot, the finale was just dumb and when looking back at the movie as a whole, it doesn’t make sense. Elizabeth Olsen for her part was good and the first 65-minutes or so were great, but the ending spoiled it all.
