Trivia

For a dream sequence, cinematographer Thomas Burstyn came up with the idea of having two cameras - one with color film, the other infrared black & white - shoot the exact same image, and then combining them in post-production. Clairmont Camera designed and built a rig that positioned one camera above the other and used mirrors to correctly align their respective images. This became known as the "Crazy Horse" or "Over/Under" rig, and is still available for rental at Clairmont. See more »

Quotes

Red Cloud: Our way of life is finished. There is only the white man's way, and we will learn it... or we will all die.
Crazy Horse: I speak only for myself. I'll live the way of my fathers... as a warrior.

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.
