« back to classes page
Since his 2015 debut with the shocking movie Sicario, Taylor Sheridan has followed with a torrent of compelling screenplays such as Come Hell or High Water (2016), Wind River (2017), the sequel Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018). He is the principal writer and show runner for the Paramount Network’s hit series Yellowstone (2018). Sheridan grew up dirt poor on a ranch in central Texas, an experience that anchors the clear and consistent worldview of his scripts. His characters live and love with the keen awareness that ruinous violence lurks just below the surface of civilized life. Sheridan reminds us that William Faulkner’s description of Southern life (“The past is never dead---It's not even past”) also applies to the West. We'll view and analyze scenes from Sheridan’s works.
