Storyline

When a lawyer loses an appeal to stop a logging company from clear-cutting Native American land, Arthur, an Indian militant drags him and the kidnapped logging mill manager into the forest. The lawyer's empty talk about how the company's greed should be punished is put into brutal action by Arthur, who tortures the manager in allegorical ways mimicking what loggers do to the forest.

Great movie
29 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie. I love it. I would recommend this movie to anyone I love Graham Greene he is a great actor. I am 1/4 Chiricahua Apache. i love all native American music, movies. Also u need to watch Graham Greene's other movies like Skins, Dances with Wolves & others. They are all good movies. Speaking of Dances with Wolves someday when my husband & I have our native wedding i am going to be married in my People's colors. I think that would be so cool. Another Good movie of Graham's is Eductaion of Little Tree that was great too. I Have never seen Graham in a bad movie. To me he brings life to the character he is playing no matter if it is a comedy or a drama.
