An FBI agent teams with the town's veteran game tracker to investigate a murder that occurred on a Native American reservation.

The film was written and directed by Taylor Sheridan, writer of Sicario and Hell or High Water. It is currently has an 87% on Rotten Tomatoes.

This was not my favorite of Sheridan's work (still have to go with Sicario), but I love the remote, snowy rural aesthetic.

I saw some parallels with Sicario here actually, in terms of characters and how the story ends up playing out...Don't want to spoil anything yet, but I'll be interested to see if others know what I mean.

I wondered why it was only ONE FBI agent.

Just saw a tv docu about Ruby Ridge and the FBI agent assigned to that area was solitary for quite a long time until some major multi-person crimes occurred.

I think they made it clear that an Indian reservation was pretty low priority.

This is only tangentially related to the film, but I couldn't help but notice it had 5 producers, 19 (!) executive producers, and a single associate producer. Can someone please explain to me why a film needs 25 producers?

Well, that was well done and predictable. Beautiful scenery. Renner plays to type. Interesting camera work, more handhelds than I would have thought.
