Maybe It's Just Me But...
12 October 2017 | by bellabanana93See all my reviews

I thought that I was going to find it very interesting when I read the reviews. I was excited to watch a film produced by Native Americans as I had not seen one before. This came out in 1920 and it is a silent film. I have not watched many silent films before. I did watch one that I found entertaining so I was unsure whether or not I would like this movie.

I couldn't watch much of it. I just found it too boring. I couldn't even really follow the film at all. It did seem sweet and the main character was beautiful but I just could not watch it without falling asleep. I may try to watch this film again in a few months or a year and see if I change my mind and am able to get into it.
