Intelligent western...
25 June 2001 | by (Auckland, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie late one night and early the next morning, and was impressed with the sympathetic viewpoint of the complex Indian tribal situation.

This sure beats many movies which use "red men" as cannon-fodder, treating them as unique individuals with their own culture and reasons for doing things.
