Goofs

When Chee initiates the felony stop of Ashley Pinto on the deserted road - no law enforcement officer would let the suspect turn and face him prior to putting the hand cuffs on. The suspect would be flat on his stomach, arm and legs spread and facing away from the officer before the officer would approach the suspect. See more »

Navajo tribe police unravel a murder mystery on the 'res'.
20 November 2003 | by (Apple Valley, California) – See all my reviews

As a longtime Tony Hillerman fan I looked forward to a better treatment of his Jim Chee novels than previous efforts. Visually Coyote Waits was very attractive but unfortunately was unable to impart the feel of the long lonely roads and the dry heat of the four corners region. The film was somewhat better at giving us a glimpse of Navajo culture, but unfortunately it was only a glimpse. In particular I missed the periods of silence and waiting we learned about in the books. Sure that's dead time in a visual medium, but that is important to the Navajo culture and the novels. The plot was very close to the novel, and the few concessions that were made were quite understandable. I hope we see more of Capt. Largo, Lt. Leaphorn and more insight into Officer Chee in future Hillerman treatments. All in all, worth a watch and certainly better than the formula mysteries we see regularly on broadcast TV.
