This post reminded me of the "Injuns" in the movie "My Darling Clementine" starring Henry Fonda. I think I read in one of Tony Hillerman's books that the Indians hired for the movie were Navajo. They spoke a great deal in their native language, which if you could understand the lingo, were greatly to the detriment of the people who had hired them.


Smoke Signals is a little disjointed, but a lot of fun to watch. You will never again listen to a radio rush hour traffic report without chuckling.

Maybe Clint Eastwood could pay for it?

And dont forget Pow-Wow Highway. What a masterpiece. Although the star is "the war pony" (66 Wildcat).

Fast Runner is simply incredible. Netflix has it in their catalog @ http://tinyurl.com/2a2wyzk.

The amazing thing about the movie is it is entirely in Inuit and impossible to tell if it happened yesterday or 500 years ago. And it will give you a new appreciation for what it means to be cold...

Atanarjuat is indeed a great film. Not only because of its story and direction but also it really opened my eyes to digital filmmaking. They couldn't have made it economically if they hadn't gone all digital. Yes, it looks kind of dated now but it was among the forefront of digital motion picture at the time.
