Excellent Docudrama
20 July 2003 | by (Michigan USA) – See all my reviews

I think this was the best film made about the life and death of a great Native American Chief. Chief Crazy Horse life was filled with much sorrow but he never denied his people any thing including a way to live freely. Michael Greyeyes did an excellent job protraying Crazy Horse. Others in the film- Frank Avina, Zahn McClarnon, Irene Bedard, Wes Studi, August Schellenberg, and the rest of the cast did great with their charactors. I recommend this film for every one especially those who want a better understanding about Crazy Horse and The Sioux Nation.
