Won't rise to leadership
21 July 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Journey Through Rosebud is a film sadly neglected through the years. I missed in theaters when it first came out and I finally did get to catch it on YouTube. It's an interesting story of a man for whom leadership and greatness seem to be calling. Only Robert Forster is failing to heed the call.

Watching it I was put in mind of the Ronald Colman film The Masquerader about a titled M.P. who fails to seize the reins of leadership in the House Of Commons, so dissipated is he with drink and drugs. That's Forster, Vietnam veteran pride of his tribe, but who's so beaten down with bad habits he can't function. Forster's character is also reminiscent of Ira Hayes and how Tony Curtis portrayed him in The Outsider. Remarkably similar themes.

It's an outsider who unwittingly sets in motion the forces for Forster's destruction. Young Kristoffer Tabori comes on the reservation with nothing more than an idea to escape the draft, something that was on the minds of many young men of 1972. He gets involved with the Sioux and their cause, but he's an outsider.

To Victoria Racimo, Tabori represents something different even if he's a white kid from California. When Tabori steals her from Forster it's the end for him because he realizes his dissipation and how he's let people down who count on him.

Some good scenes of reservation life are included in Journey Through Rosebud. It holds up well because over 40 years later the same problems are still there.
