Sliff 2009 Review: The Only Good Indian

20 November 2009 4:00 AM, PST | | See recent news »

If there’s one movie I’ve seen this year that has started with a great premise but has suffered from a failed execution, it would have to be The Only Good Indian. Written by Thomas L. Carmody and directed by Kevin Willmott (Csa: The Confederate States of America), this fictional pseudo-western tells the tale of a teen-aged Native American boy with the given white man name of Charlie (played by Winter Fox Frank).

Taking place in Kansas during the early 1900’s, the movie follows Charlie’s story, one of many Native American youths that were forcibly removed from their homes and placed into re-education schools that feel more like prison camps. Students are scolded, or even beaten into submission, and punished for speaking their native tongues. These scenes of the school master and the teacher forcing their ways onto these young Native Americans with the idea they are benefiting them are difficult to watch, »
