My review of "The Wind": a paranoid Western


Victor Sjöström’s 1928 silent classic ‘The Wind’, despite starring Lillian Gish as a stranded pioneer woman driven insane by the incessant wind and drought-plagued frontier environment, wasn’t a horror Western. It was a silent romantic film, widely regarded as one of the greatest. Writer Teresa Sutherland and director Emma Tammi have adapted the same source material, Dorothy Scarborough’s 1925 novel of the same name, but their film is far different. For starters, it features way less wind and a lot more shape-changing nightmare demons.
