Went to see The Wind today. It is a small movie by a first time director Emma Tami, who was present for a Q n A session and shared how many challenges one has to get across in order to get a small movie like that made, how much it helped that the cast was really passionate about the project and how they actually were battling a real wind during the shoot in Arizona.
The Wind features interesting young actresses in a pretty minimalistic western period setting of the early ninetien hundreds. I usually really like minimalistic movies and I am a sucker for all horrors so I was pretty excited.
I enjoyed the movie, but for some reason dindt "love" it, like I loved for example Hereditary, but its not really fair to compare movies like these two.
The Wind tells a quiet tale of a quiet life in the middle of a prairie where a couple of young people battles their hardships, fears, loneliness, fate and maybe some demons too.
There is a pretty kick ass scene with a reverend and really well done practical effect or two and both of the main actresses do a very good job. I also liked the music a lot.
If you like westerns and/or horrors and indie movies, this one is for you. If you dont like complex and ambiguous movies that have an underlying social commentary and are genuinely creepy and have some gore scenes in it, perhaps skip this one. Coming to cinemas near you in a. few weeks.
