an excellent documentary of Indian portrayal in Westerns
30 July 2003 | by (Monster Island) – See all my reviews

This is a fascinating documentary of the history of Indains in Hollywood (and elsewhere) cinema. Obviously well researched by the main writer(s) it covers everything from the Edison's earliest movies to the latest Indian filmmakers. It easily could have been an hour or more in length. I was most intrigued by the differences of opinions even by the Indian speakers themselves on the various subjects. Well worth watching!
