Trivia

For a dream sequence, cinematographer Thomas Burstyn came up with the idea of having two cameras - one with color film, the other infrared black & white - shoot the exact same image, and then combining them in post-production. Clairmont Camera designed and built a rig that positioned one camera above the other and used mirrors to correctly align their respective images. This became known as the "Crazy Horse" or "Over/Under" rig, and is still available for rental at Clairmont. See more »

Not really worth your time...
4 May 2000 | by thomas j-2See all my reviews

This is history? It's one of those revisionist epics where the indians are depicted as goodie-goodies on a weekend scouting trip, have a beauty parlor and a gym in the camp somewhere, don't commit anything that could be viewed as offensive to modern viewers, all whites are evil brutes to a man and Custer is made personally responsible to all things bad that ever happened to the poor indians.

Furthermore it's doubtful that any indian tribe ever discussed matters military in terms of front lines and troops or whatever.

It's not even good as a old fashioned shoot-'em up adventure movie - it's too dull for that. If you want to see anything serious on the subject, watch "Dances With Wolves" or "Son of the Morning Star" instead.
