If Reichardt has rightly been called a minimalist—Robert Bresson and Yasujiro Ozu are also profound influences—she’s a maximalist of repressed passions. Certain Women (2016) is the director’s sixth feature, and in every one, she has required her actors—chosen, perhaps, for their soulful vibe and ability to emote from the inside out—to work really hard at not doing very much while implying they contain multitudes.

Having made a Western and an environmental thriller, Reichardt has come full circle to the heart-on-sleeve intimacies of her devastating Wendy and Lucy. And it’s the Rancher’s story, more populated by horses than by people, that will win your heart. In a closing coda that briefly revisits each story, finding Laura visiting Fuller in jail and Gina sneaking off from Ryan for a quick cigarette break, it’s the Rancher and her dog who own the final shot, and you’ll want to watch them forever.
