Alledged wayward adolescent Louisiana gentleman Michael 'Mike' Blueberry is dumped by his family with a Wild West uncle. The brute's only 'motivation' is a stick. After a nearly fatal encounter in the brothel with Wallace 'Wally' Sebastian Blount, Mike is left for dead in the desert. A Chiricuahua (Apache) medicine man's family finds, nurses and initiates him. After the shaman's death, Mike returns and becomes the town's honest 'deputy' marshal. Gold fever strikes, with staged Indian brutalities to allow rivaling fiends to invade their sacred mountains.

All I'm going to say about this one is, if you've ever done Ayahuasca, or a lot of Peyote, or done shamanic journeying, this film is for you. If you haven't, you might enjoy the computer generated images -- which are truly fantastic and amazing -- but you won't have a clue what's going on. It's an inner drama, with the ultimate showdown taking place in a different dimension or reality. The camera work also is creative, appropriate, and interesting. The acting is a bit flat, but that's not exactly where the action is -- this is a genre movie, with a hackneyed plot (like some kind of recycled Gunsmoke episode) and mostly stereotyped characters, but as I say, it's just a vehicle; the real story takes place behind that. (Going to see this one stoned will NOT help you understand it.)
One of my all time favorite movies.
