Trivia

This is Michael Cimino's biggest box-office flop. The film grossed less than thirty thousand dollars domestically on a thirty-one million dollar budget (and while this made the least money, Heaven's Gate, on the other hand, lost the most money). See more »

Goofs

The cigarette the attendant in the gas station is smoking varies in length dramatically and incongruously, from being nearly smoked to the nub, almost freshly lit, and back again. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Michael Reynolds: You have a television.
Navajo woman: No. I get Good Morning America through smoke signals.

OK movie
19 January 2001 | by youngblood_16See all my reviews

The movie was ok, it wasnt boring. i saw it with my friend and she thought the movies was good too. The ending was the big disappointment for me though, it was really confusing. Jon Seda did a really good job in this movie. I recommend this movie to every one:) I give it a ***out of *****
