Storyline

In the aftermath of the Battle of the Little Big Horn, a twelve-year-old Lakota boy (Goes Alone) comes upon a wounded cavalry soldier (James) hiding in the grass. When Goes Alone sees James about to take his own life rather than be captured, the boy takes pity on him and allows him to escape into a ravine. The next morning, Goes Alone goes looking for James and finds him by a creek, wounded and dying. Over the next two days, Goes Alone and James form a bond that grows into a friendship as Goes Alone tries to help the dying soldier. The price they both pay for the friendship they share is high as their two cultures come into contact again in a startling and emotional conclusion. Written by Anonymous

I Loved This Little Movie.
24 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to have the new LAST STAND (SPECIAL EDITION DVD) sent to me as a gift from a friend. I loved this little movie and I've been telling all my friends about it. It's an engrossing story set in the aftermath of the Battle of Little Big Horn. Although, Last Stand has a running time of twenty-three minutes, it's hard to call it a short. It really is like a little feature film. My friends and I popped it into the DVD player one night, not knowing what to expect, and all three of us became immediately absorbed with the story. Writer/Director Gabe Torres has clearly made a film out of love. Jason London gives a truly anguished performance as James, a wounded calvary soldier, and newcomer Joseph Saul gives an incredible performance without saying a single word throughout the film. I hope to see him again in more movies or television. He is a wonderful Actor. Yoram Astrakhan's cinematography and Brian Tyler's soundtrack fill the senses. The work as whole is very emotional and beautiful.

If you haven't seen this little work of art yet, by all means buy it for your DVD collection. If you've already caught Last Stand at a film festival, then you know how wonderful it is, but you will still want to get your hands on the SPECIAL EDITION DVD for the special features. The 'Behind The Scenes' Documentary is a truly inspiring look at how Gabe Torres somehow managed to rally together a group of successful Hollywood friends to literally work for free out of love for his project and vision. One of the most interesting features is the original audition of Joseph Saul, a young Indian boy right off the reservation, pulling his weight with seasoned film and television star Jason London, and landing his first film role. If you haven't seen this film yet, absolutely do what you can to get your hands on it now. I loved this little movie!
