    THE BEAUTY OF WIND RIVER’S CLIMAX

    Taylor Sheridan is on fire.

    But I apparently can't just enjoy good things while they last, so I can’t help but ask myself: how many more times can he do this before he has to do something new? After Sicario and Hell or High Water, this is the third time he’s used a uniquely American situation as the context to tell a gripping, slow burn, mysterious revenge story.

    The only reason he's gotten away…

    What Steven Soderbergh is saying by releasing such a similar movie to Ocean’s Eleven is that, yes, he knows Ocean’s Eleven was good, and he thinks Logan Lucky is even better. So, as long as he’s begging us to compare the two… here goes.

    There’s no getting around it: Logan Lucky’s plot structure pretty closely mirrors Ocean’s Eleven’s. There’s an introduction for each of our main characters, preparation for the heist, the actual heist, then a reveal that…
