Beautiful piece, wish it was longer.
21 June 2005 | by cupikSee all my reviews

"A Thousand Roads" is a beautiful movie, capturing the fact that many if not all people struggle everyday with one foot in the traditional world of their ancestry and the other foot in the chaos of the western world.

Isn't there a war going on right now with pressures such as the above a key component of the desire to fight back? People are struggling everywhere with what they've been told the world should be, and the opposite staring them right back?

Took off 1 point because it was too short!!!!

We want more, we want more!
