    Edward Guthmann San Francisco Chronicle

    Graham Greene ("Dances With Wolves") in one of the year's best performances, he's a fully dimensional character: pathetic and shrewd, tragic and bitterly funny. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    To see this movie is to understand why the faces on Mount Rushmore are so painful and galling to the first Americans. The movie's final image is haunting. show more
