The Wind (2018)
Critic Reviews for The Wind
It's refreshing to see such an original stab at this type of indie genre-bender, especially one told from a strictly female point of view.
"The Wind" doesn't seek to make infallible heroes of its women, but to understand and empathize with even their most unforgivable acts. And it's a hugely promising debut in terms of Tammi's steady, assured directorial craft.
While some of the story elements are missing or thin, Tammi demonstrates a real knack for visual storytelling and mood; balancing tone and pace while pulling off some very creepy moments.
The good elements in The Wind only serve to remind you of the potential for this story, but the final product is just a lesser version of much better films.
The Wind could have been much better if editing and creative timelines took a step back, and allowed the harrowing story and stellar performances to be the focus of the terror. As it is, the film tries far too hard to tell a tale that needs no frills.
While intriguing in its take on the dynamics between women and how the forces of nature influence their psyche in such an isolated setting, the narrative moves too slowly and is too abstract in regard to the terror it attempts to portray.
