Great drama, great history
22 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

I rented this movie because I was interested in what happened at Wounded Knee, both in the 1890s and in the 1970s. This movie was an excellent recap of the 70s standoff, with outstanding and genuine performances. It also goes back to the 1890s to review the outrage committed by US forces against the Lakota Sioux. I highly recommend this movie both as drama and as history.
