A love story you can get lost in
21 February 2009 | by (Glasgow, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Rez Bomb is a love story you can get lost in. It declines to portray Native Americans in the set model of drug addiction and crime, and instead tells a charming tale of love on the run and against the odds that could be set anywhere.

Steven Simpson's direction brings a knowledge of the setting gleaned from years spent there and documentaries filmed there, and Pine Ridge inhabitants' status as second class citizens is starkly pictured throughout, yet Simpson somehow makes this film as joyous as it is damning, a fast-paced, rollicking ride in the company of great characters and a wicked soundtrack.

We saw it at the Glasgow Film Festival on Thursday (19.02.09) and the audience all seemed to love it, staying to quiz Simpson on this slow burning poverty he has brought so powerfully to light.

Tom and Josie, Glasgow.
