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 »

Quotes

Odell Redd: Tagert thought Ashie could help him prove Butch
[Cassidy]
Odell Redd: died somewhere on the rez. And if he died there, then maybe his bones are still there. And if he could come up with those lovely, famous bones...
Jim Chee: Then Tagert is famous too.
Odell Redd: Famous and rich. At least as rich as historians ever get. Chee, it's all bullshit. Pinto claimed to know where Sitting Bull was buried, Geronimo too. Hell, for a bottle of whiskey, that old Indian would tell you where to find Amelia Earhart.

Kinda slow at first......
18 November 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

This was my first Hillerman experience. Maybe the slowness of the beginning is necessary, but I was wanting to check out. It got better towards the end with several interesting twists that I was glad I stayed for. I enjoyed seeing the area of the reservation (or 'rez' as they say in the movie) and hearing a bit of American Indian mythology and stories. No special effects, just good acting and a good story.
